I just bought some calla lilies and planted them with Miracle Grow potting soil and the leaves are turning yellow and they have been planted about a week. Can you tell me what's wrong?

Yellowing leaves can mean that the plant is overwatered, underwatered or not getting enough light. Calla lilies like moist soil, so when the top of the soil starts to feel that it is drying out, you should water it. This article discusses why calla lilies get yellow leaves:
