Patience and correct watering will be key. I suspect overwatering. Make sure that the ground is completely dry down to about 3 inches or so before watering. You will have to check by hand if you don't have tools to do so.

Alternatively, just let nature water the shrub. Underwatering is much better than overwatering.

The same goes for the vegetable patch, too. Saturated soils that remain that way for too long will cause rot. Just be sure to give it adequate time to dry out between watering, or only water during times of drought.
