Boxwood leaves are browning/have spots on them

Hi everyone,

First post here and also pretty new to gardening. I planted boxwoods last fall and most seemed to be coming back well. However, noticing spots on new growth leaves as well as shrivelling up/yellowing of others.

I’ve tried to search for similar photos online without much success. Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you for your time

Samples of boxwood infected with the fungus Cylindrocladium pseudonaviculatum, the cause of boxwood blight, have been confirmed by the Rutgers Plant Diagnostic Laboratory and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture Laboratory in recent days. This is the first report of the disease is New Jersey.

Boxwood blight has been a disease of serious concern in the United Kingdom since 1994. It was first reported in the United States in October 2011 in Connecticut and North Carolina. Since its initial detection, the problem has been reported in MA, MD, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, and VA.
