lovely sea, i only had my plant a few weeks and it died, not sure why,, are they hard to grow?

they can be fussy prefering acidic soil. they also dont like the morning sun on frosted buds etc. but this one lived in a pot for 5 years before it was put in the garden 10yrs ago. i kept it well watered. thats the usual cause of death after transplanting.
