Since fertilizer promotes new growth, it's best to wait until spring to feed your landscape plants. You can dig and transplant them now, but hold off on feeding until next spring. Yellowing junipers can indicate overly wet soils, especially in newly planted shrubs. Although hillside plantings should not have problems with drainage, it may be that they simply are getting too much water. It's really hard to diagnose a problem without actually seeing it! If it were my plant I think I'd dig it up and take it into your local cooperative extension office for positive diagnosis. Contact UG Extension, 140 Stonewall Ave, Fayetteville, GA 30214-1520
(770) 305-5412. I'm sure they can help.
