I like the "do nothing except maybe water advice." The foilage of established lilly-of-the-valley can sometimes be a little scruffy this time of year, so I am not surprised new plants don’t look so happy. My guess is they will come on strong next year. (It might be a good idea to put down an inch or so of leaf mulch after they go dormant in the fall.) good luck!
