What conifers are they, are they in pots or the ground, how long have you had them, what part of the country are you in

I think things have got a bit dry at the moment. They are probably quite young and in pots, some of mine are in pots and looking a little sorry for themselves; try a nice long drink [for them].

could be many things:
too dry,
too cold,
too windy,
conifer aphid,
honey fungus,

dry and wind are probably the most likely though.
