Care & Maintenance

Junipers are moderately growing evergreen/coniferous shrubs. Fairly low maintenance once established, but will require water and mulch in drought conditions to support overall health.

When planting, ensure good root to soil contact to prevent air pockets from drying out roots. Do not allow junipers to stand in water, they will not survive over-wet conditions.

Slow release tree and shrub fertilizer can be applied for extra nutrients, but is not required.

Prune out broken and/or diseased branches by cutting back to an overlapping branch that will hide the cut. Light shearing of new growth can help maintain shape.
