My wife and I just planted about fifteen boxwoods three days ago. Tonight while watering I noticed that several have sunk down as the soil settled. There is enough of a depression to hold water. I've read that boxwood's don't like wet feet, but this is June. Should I lift them and replant them. or will they be ok?

By all means, lift them up --- if the soil around young plants gets too saturated you'll cut off their air supply.

You might also carefully review the planting guide, linked below, to see if there are other potential problems.
