Q.Why Is My Newly Transplanted Hydrangea Leaves Wilting?
I planted my hydrangea yesterday as per all the instructions I have read I watered it fed it fertilize it as it was said the plant seemed happy yesterday and today when I came home from work the leaves are wilting but like a slimy wealth. I live in northern Canada the hydrangea is in shade most of the morning then it gets sun for about four hours in the afternoon the degree here was 20°C when I came home from work I also watered it and that’s when I noticed. Please help.

It may be from transplant shock and a bit too much water and/or fertilizer. Hold off on fertilizing again for a year; hydrangeas don't need much.
