Aware I've probably spelt it wrong!

I bought an aquiliga the other week when it was lovely and sunny, and planted it. We then had really strong wind and rain and it got quite battered and was flopped over, it wasn't snapped so I have attached it to a stake. All the flowers and top leaves have died but there are good leaves at the bottom of the plant. Is there anything I can do to give it some help? I have been watering everyday in the sunny weather. Wondering if they like anything in particular added to the soil?

It looked so pretty when I bought it Im quite sad now at it's sorry state!

    that's a shame Harriet, someone who knows more than me will reply, I have a garden full so once you do start they self seed for England I.'ve even got to cull some

    Don't let it dry out but don't drown it. Watering everyday is a bit too much. To get the best for next year cut off the flower stem and the larger leaves. Don't feed an invalidimage

    It will be fine next year
