Lilac Yellowing, Pocked, and Curling

I recently bought a lilac bush about 1-2 feet high and it flourished for the first month. Now the leaves are yellow edged and are pocked, and turning inward. Am I watering it too much? This time of year we are socked in with "gloom" by the coast as well.

How much and when are you watering? Sounds more like you haven't watered enough or maybe not deep enough. Watering should be done early morning or late evening. Lots of times I'm watering in the dark. The first year of watering is so important, and watering enough, as in getting soil soaked a good 6 inches or more, daily or at least every other day is very important. I usually count to 60 for each plant, water should puddle around base of your plant. Shallow watering doesn't encourage root growth which is also important. If none of this sounds like the problem take a couple fresh leaves with you to nursery and see what they can tell you. Good luck.
