Answer: Unfortunately based on your description I am unable to diagnose the problem specifically for you. Since there is a one-sided pattern to the browning I would tend to suspect there is possibly an environmental problem (eg accidental exposure to herbicide, automatic watering system spraying it with water that has gone through a water softener, something like that), but without seeing the plant it is very difficult to say. (It could also be a fungal problem, for example, or a root issue.) Since this is a brand new plant I would strongly suggest you contact your retailer to troubleshoot the problem, and/or possibly your county extension. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you. Good luck with your pompom juniper.
