Help With dying Buxus

Hi guys first time posting here so I appreciate all help, I have some Buxus shaped trees, which over the last months seem to have been progressively turning a yellow/brown and I was wondering if there were any suggestions to potentially bring them back to life, I’ve given them water and sun, the roots seems wet so not sure if over watered or under nourished and if so if there is anything correctable.
any help would be greatly appreciated

    They can suffer from Box blight and Box tree caterpillar.  We need close-up photos to see if it could be that.  However the pots they are in are far too small. Box are hungry plants (for water and nutrients).  Getting them into more substantial pots, or better still the ground, will put less stress on them.
