    What size did you put it into, and what size was the pot it was in?
    Over potting can cause problems as the roots can be sitting in very wet soil long term.
    Compost isn't any use long term either - anything staying potted long term needs a soil based medium  :)
    Wind/sun can cause damage - especially on some varieties more than others. 
    A photo will help too  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
