Can these plants be saved?

Are they smokeable? What are they?

Wild Rocket and Oriental Salad Leaves (mixed). 

Not smokable as far as I know, I'm not desperate enough to check either.

I think they're knackered.

Yeah, I was thinking that might have been the case. Not sure what I did wrong, aside from not planting them into bigger containers, and leaving them outside to be rained on loads.

Cut them down to a few of the smaller leaves, split and transplant them into ground or larger into bigger pots and give them some decent watering, they should encourage from fresh leaf growth.

Rocket is usually grown as an annual, a pack of seeds from ebay for 2 quid delivered and you'll have limitless supply, it's not too late to sow. You can sow up to late August!

The one on left might be salvageable but not worth the effort when you can grow a nice healthy one (well hundreds) in a few weeks

I’ve been buying more seeds from these people. Really good quality and cheap.

I've got a few from years back, still going strong. 

If you do grow rocket you must must keep it fairly well watered, that's the golden rule. If the soil dries to a crisp it'll bolt and be ruined

I think these have "bolted", whatever that means, can they be saved though?

Bolted. Ran to seed. When the growing Gods say "Look we are   FUBAR'ed. We are going to die. The kids? We do not have any! Seed time!" Lack of watering my guess here.

DOSBODER's alert. The brief heatwave will see many distressed plant sales due to lack of watering. Buy before the weekends out and they will be salvaged at reduced price!
