Too much water??? Disease?
Bring one back to the garden centre and ask them for an opinion. They might even replace them.

My first thought was box blight, but they look more bleached than brown. Be on the safe side and isolate them from any box you have in your garden. Blight spreads like wildfire in damp conditions. I lost a whole hedge to it in under one season.

Tagwex's idea about taking it one - or more back to the garden centre is a worth a shot.

Just one other thought - you haven't got a dog have you? Shocked

Hi Sue many thanks for your reply.
Yes never thought to Separate those from the Good Ones, but will do so now (maybe to late).
Yes we have a Pet Dog ( Black Lab Cross) but she's never in that Area.
Sue, it maybe that i Over Watered ( in that Very Hot Weather) at the Start.
I wlll keep an Eye on them over the Next Month or so.
Many Thanks again Sue.
Regards.
