Hello, I bought a Blue Point Juniper last year and planted it during the summer. I live up north in Canada and we had a very harsh winter this year. After the snow melted my Junipers (I have 2) started turning brown. They still have some green to them, but mostly brown. I fertilized and watered them, but they don't seem to be recovering. Are they dead? Maybe they didn't have time to get established before winter or maybe I watered them too much. I don't know. It says on the tag that they are hardy -30o to -40o. Thanks for your help.

Blue Point Juniper is hardy in your growing region. It needs full sunshine and well draining soils. One deep watering once each week during the growing season should be all it needs. You can shear off the dead foliage, cutting back to live wood. It should produce new foliage for you later in the season.

Good luck with your landscape!
