If the yellowing starts with the older leaves it is due to a lack of nitrogen. Poorly drained, overwatered, compacted, and cold soils are often infertile and need feeding. Solution: feed with a evergreen tree and shrub fertilizer and do not keep the soil constantly wet.

If the leaves appear crisp, it may be leaf scortch. This is less-likely the case.

Sounds to me like the plant was healthy in its new location for a bit but now has sucked out all the nutrients from the soil. This problem can easily be solved with fertilizer. Let me know how things work out.
