Answer: I wouldn't dig the shrubs up just yet - there still may be hope. Cape Jasmine likes an acidic, moist but well drained soil that's high in organic matter. The yellowing leaves and brown leaf tips could indicate over-watering but they might also indicate soil that's too alkaline and low in organic matter. Wait until the weather warms a bit and new growth appears. If it has the same yellowish cast, you can dig the plants up, recondition the soil by adding peat moss and compost to lower the pH and facilitate good drainage, then replant. Hope this helps!
