The leaves on my hydrangeas began turning brown after I planted them. New shoots came out and then they turned brown. Now they are wilting, although I have been watering them. What's wrong with them?

Typically, in hydrangea, this is caused by a watering issue. Since it's newly planted, there may be gaps in the soil around the root ball that is drying out the roots. I would tamp down the soil around the plant. I would also recommend upping the watering. In addition, it could be suffering from shock.
