Here is our page on boxwood diseases, including boxwood blight. It is not too hard to identify boxwood blight yourself, but you can take photos and send it in here for identification, too. Our plant pathologist will take a look at it. Send in close ups of leaves, stems and also the whole plant.

Leaves infected with blight quickly drop, which is different from other diseases they get.
