Box in pots must be looked after very carefully as they are prone to drying out. The damge may not be recoverable.

They need feeding during the growing season but sick plants should not be fed until they show signs of fresh healthy growth.

It is possible they have got box blight but drying out is the more common problem and it can happen in winter too.
