Monrovia custom blends potting soil for general use - look for it at your local garden center. If you cannot locate Monrovia's brand, use any good potting soil (Sunshine Mix, Miracle-Gro, etc.) for your junipers. In general, use a multipurpose granular fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or 5-10-5 according to the fertilizer's label instructions. It's easy to overdose plants in containers, so use the smallest amount recommended, on an annual basis. Best wishes with your new junipers!
