|I transplanted a azelea and a japanese andromidia two weeks ago, there starting to brown at the leaves. Are they dying, can I stop it from happening or is it to late?

|Browning leaves on newly transplanted azalea and pieris can simply be the result of transplant shock and/or sun scorch. Once the roots settle in, the plants should perk up and develop healthy new growth. There's not much you can do to help your new plants establish themselves other than to water them deeply every 4 or 5 days to encourage deep root growth. Best wishes with your new shrubs.
