Hello my hydrangeas and hostas have stopped growing after transplanting and the blooms and certain leaves have turned brown and almost "crispy" like what could I do to remedy this? I used some bonemeal, added mulch and have been watering, the plants enjoy shade for most part of the day

Probably a little transplant shock and the hydrangea flowers may be spent at this time. Hostas are pretty tough, I would just keep up the watering at the base of the plant, not on the leaves, the hydrangeas wilt fairly easy if it has been dry for awhile. Just curious which way do the plants face and is the background that it backs up too, brick or a metal structure.

Bottom line, they should be fine...at this point they do not need any fertilizer.

Welcome!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you for your quick response. The background is my fence from Home Depot... vinyl material? The plants are facing south.

They should be fine, just keep them well watered until they get established.

Whats your temps like ?
There may be some varieties that can with stand only direct hot afternoon sun.
None that i ever ment.
Hear. They like morning to noon sun !
Shade, the rest of day.

Direct afternoon sun in 80s will burn there leaves.
😎😎😎
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Around 70 to low 80s I think the hydrangeas are getting mostly sun during the morning so it's not terrible
