Hi Margaret, 

well if you don't have good drainage in your baskets then the plants stand a fair chance of becoming water-logged and suffering from root rot. 

In addition to this you should step up your feeding program as the rain will be flushing through the nutrients in the compost quicker than is ideal, so add some continuous release fertiliser into your baskets to help boost the nutrient levels.
