Q.Transplanted Ligustrum, Should I Pull Them
I transplanted two ligustrum in between already mature ligustrum. They’ve slowly been dying and I think I may need to pull them and start over. Soon after planting the leaves all fell down like they were wilting. I assumed over watering so did not water for 5 days. I took off all dead leaves (which is almost the whole thing) and have been watering every few days but there is no new growth

I wouldn't move them again. They are probably suffering from transplant shock plus it's the worst time of the year to transplant. That is best done in spring or fall. Keep them well watered but not saturated and make sure they don't sit in water.
Did you get most of the rootball when you moved them? That can make a big difference in their recovery.
