Q.Why Is My Newly Transplanted Delphinium Leaves Are Wilting And Drying?

Zone 84044 | Anonymous added on July 1, 2022 | Answered

Our delphinium is transplanted a week ago. It gets partial sun (shaded by a tree) and we water it daily. I noticed the leaves drying and yellowing today and I’m not sure what’s wrong with it. Would appreciate some advice and tips on how to fix or prevent this from happening further. Thank you.
