The Q&A Archives: Blue Point Juniper

Question: I planted 4 Blue Point Junipers in April 07 and 2 are turning brown. I have used tree shrub spikes(Miracle grow) and quick start(Miracle grow)and water offten. My question is are they dead?

Answer: I don't that they are dead, but they sound quite stressed. You may be over-watering. Junipers require full sunshine and fast-draining soils. One deep soaking per week should keep them happy. If you're watering more often than that, you're over-watering. Wait until spring, then prune back the dead parts. If the roots are healthy your junipers will produce new foliage.

Best wishes with your landscape!
