Help!!I just planted a couple of Astilbe & Lupines in 24x8 containers. All the plants are drying out even tho there seem to be adequate moisture in the soil.I used Ace Hardware Potting Soil. The containers do have adequate drainage. It seems like the soil is like mud at the bottom of the container. Is it possible that the plants are getting waterlogged from the poor soil (too much clay perhaps). Any help would be greatly appreciated

It is possible that you've overwatered them , but it's also possible they are suffering transplant shock.
Put them in a cool spot out of direct sunlight until they pickup. Give them a drink of liquid seaweed extract and leave them to adjust to their new spot. Apply again in a weeks time.
