Why have my leeks' leaves turned brown and bent over?

They were bought as plants and initially grew well. They were watered in the dry spell and have had plenty of rain showers - could it be a pest?



I would think possibly rust?
The leaves shouldn't be composted But binned or burned instead.

Hi Ann - just how well watered were they?
