Hi Brown thumb. Sorry nobody has answered this yet. I am not an expert on Boxus but based on other plants I would say it is probably magnesium deficiency. Get some Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate) from the chemist (or if Oz uses the American term - drug store) and add about 2 heaped teaspoons to the gallon of water and water your box well. Repeat occasionally and that should eventually do the trick.
