I have a Gerber Daisy,and two osteospermum plants, bought at Home Depot, they were great when I bough them home, but shortly after repotting the blooms looked aweful, brownish and weak, plenty of new blossoms but resulting in the same sad flowers, I deadhead them, but what might be wrong,
Thanks, Krish.

Transplant shock is the most likely reason for the drooping. As soon as the roots establish themselves in their new homes the plants should perk up. Try shading them from hot afternoon sunshine during the adjustment period. Best wishes with your new plants!
