I purchased (2) Torchglow Bougainvillea on 7/12/2010 at Moon Valley Nursery, they are still in the original growing pots, they are yellowing already. Do they need more or less water?

Torchglow bougainvillea doesn't need a lot of water but since they are still in the nursery pots, direct sunshine on the containers can bake the roots. Try to shield the containers from direct sun but still keep the tops of the plants in the sunshine. Too much water can cause leaf yellowing so try allowing the soil to dry out a bit between applications. Hope you can get them into the ground soon so the roots can spread out!
