I had a Daphne spring pink planted in a pot but it died I think due to overwatering.

I planted a new one in the same pot which was still quite damp. I gave the new plant a little water & then it rained. It has now drooped & soil still moist. It is in soil with water crystals. Should I replant it into drier soil without water crystals?

It sounds like there could be a drainage issue, potentially either with the pot not having sufficient drainage holes or poor potting mix. We recommend to look for a pot with decent drainage holes (either one large one at the base or several small ones) and use a good quality potting, like Yates Premium Potting Mix. Allow the potting mix to near dry out before watering again.
