Woah! That's far too much fertiliser - the poor plants are still trying to get their roots established - it's the equivalent of giving a baby a three course gourmet meal plus wine and brandy!
I wouldn't have given them any feed yet - when it's well established a sprinkling of Fish, Blood and Bone twice a year (spring and early summer) would be all I'd give them.
It's hard to tell whether you've over-watered them - stick your finger in the soil up to the first knuckle. Is the soil dry or wet? They only need watering when the soil an inch below the surface is dry.
I'm a bit confused re the direction of the sunlight - I had no idea that the sun sets in the East in Dublin - don't think it did when we visited
