I've just planted some asters that I got, but the day after planting some of them have got very droopy leaves. I've watered them well, so I'm not sure what the issue is. What can I do to help them recover?

If they're in strong sunlight the roots can't get water up the leaves quickly enough, so the leaves droop. If you've watered them, they'll recover when the sun gets off them.
Many plants in my garden inc established perennials are doing the same.
On occasion I've used a garden parasol to provide shade.
If they're not in bright sunlight, then maybe it's just the shock of transplanting.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Thanks Pete8, thats reassuring. They are planted in full sun and I've just watered them, so I'll cross my fingers and hope they recover soon.
Droopy Asters sounds like an ageing porn star.
