Crocosmia Hotspot

I planted this plant on 13th May. It was doing really well. However now, I have noticed quite a few yellow leaves. Is this just part of the growing process or is there something wrong? Thank you.

    Is it wet under that ornamental bark? If it is newly planted it will need a regular water for the first year, but probably will be Ok after that. I think crocosmia do better with a grit top dressing.They like free draining soil but not getting bone dry.
  • Thanks for your reply. I've watered it every week. It's rained for a few days aswell. When it arrived, it looked half dead. It had come out of the pot and some of the leaves were a bit brown and dried. It's done really well since I planted it.
