I just planted quite a few things. Like a burning bush,Golden Euonymus,azalea and wintercreeper. I know I planted them real good. I thank that they look like they are already dying.What did I do wrong? The plants and trees that were already here seem like they are dying to. Is there something killing everthing?

Newly planted trees and shrubs can sometimes show a little transplant stress. They can wilt, drop their flowers, and just look pathetic until the roots become established. There's nothing you need to do aside from watering deeply once or twice a week (depending upon weather) and wait for them to perk up. All landscape trees and shrubs need a deep soaking on a weekly basis so be sure to water everything in your landscape on a regular basis. I'm sure they will perk up soon. Enjoy your garden.
