Last year I transplanted six box trees from my brother in law's garden. One of them, the biggest (see last image), turned completely yellow without losing a single leaf, so I cut it down.
Now another one of the trees is doing the same thing. I can't keep cutting them down because I would like to know how I can fix them.
I already tried with pesticides for branch death (or whats that called in English?) and the typical boxtree moths.
I don't water them that often because they are in the ground.
I have three others that are in my chicken coop and those are doing great. The fourth one, though, is doing bad (first two pictures). I cut some of the yellow branches because they are dead anyway.
I attached some pictures so you guys can see what's going on:
The image below is of the now-cut-down buxus tree. It turned completely yellow without losing a leaf. I guess that my other buxus plants are going in the same direction. You can also see the left buxus being in pretty good shape. This is the one that is now turning yellow/brown as well.
To answer the questions in the comments:
I transplanted them near the end of the dormant season. The trees were going to be thrown away so there was nothing to lose, i guess. I believe it was September or October last year. There were six of them.
The pesticides were used based on a recommendation of the local store, so I did not use them willy nilly. I am a beginner gardener so I might be gullable, sure. The box moth, however, was clearly visible. The branch death was a guess by the store owner.
And I water all my plants properly according to the weather. I was told that buxus trees and other trees in full ground don't really need that much watering unless there is a drought.
