Q.Ornamental Holly Bush
Not long ago I purchased 4 Ornamental Holly Bushes [three female and one male]. They were delivered quite ‘sick’ – pasty and yellow. Since planting them in the garden, two females and the male are beginning to go green and I have noticed a tiny bud on each of them. The variegated female (not sure of the name) has gone purple and droopy, the leaves to touch are ‘soggy’. Is this because I transplanted them from one spot of the garden to another, albeit the others are quite happy; at the moment any way?

It sounds like the drooping, soggy plant has received too much water and may be showing signs of root rot. Back off any watering to allow the roots to dry out some. This article may also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/root-rot-in-garden-plants.htm
