Wiegela Shrubs Are Shocked Over-Watered And Over-Fertilized

Question From: L. Greenfield - Trufant, Michigan, United States
Q: I planted 4 wiegela shrubs and it appears that I have done everything wrong. Shocked, over watered and fertilized thinking I was doing things right. Leaves are dropping off at an alarming rate. Is there any hope for my shrubs or should I consider Them dead and dig them up and replace them?

A: Now that you've seen the light give them a few weeks to recover. Keep the soil moist but not sodden. Do not let it dry out. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
