Transplanted pomegranates about a month or so ago now leaves are turning yellow...

Hello...
I live in the middle of South Carolina..
ANyway, transplanted pomegranate shrubs..they were abotu a foot tall at the time... into the ground at my house. Used some compost mixed with the normal soil there. Little bit of Miracle grow fertilizer put a little bit into the soil...been watered probably once a day or so.
Now, I haev found that pruning the shrubs helps ... I pruned one down very far recently and it grew back a lot of great leaves but then some leaves were yellow. I just now pruned it again.
Is more pruning the answer? I have also gotten rid of the other yellow leaevs on the other plants by pruning mostly.
What could be the cause though of this yellowing?

That is not a normal watering cycle. An inch of water no more than 2 times a week would be better. Pomegranates are tough and don't need a lot of TLC!!
