If they are totally brown, there might not be much hope. Usually browning over the winter months is a sign of winter damage but in this case it may have been caused by root stress - perhaps the new planting site doesn't drain as well as the old one or perhaps the roots were injured during the move. Wish I had something more positive to share with you!
