Planting & Care
To plant your Green Mound, dig a hole deep enough to cover its root ball. After placing your plant, tamp down the soil while backfilling to avoid air pockets. Finally, mulch around the surrounding soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Once established, the Green Mound Juniper is drought tolerant, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for best growth. Generally, the Green Mound Juniper responds well to weekly watering. You may water more in times of drought or less in seasons with heavy rainfall. If you’re not sure when to water, though, simply check the soil – about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry at this depth, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize your Green Mound Juniper in early spring and again in mid fall. We recommend using an organic granular or water soluble fertilizer for best results.
4. Pruning: Pruning isn’t required for your Green Mound, but if you’d like to shape it, it responds well to shearing.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Excellent. Healthy, nice size, looks great!
Great product. Covers the ground perfectly with a Zen feel.
Overall experience ordering the product is excellent.
I like this plant, it will work well with my zero scape garden, on the edges, falling over in between rocks. I was a little disappointed in the way it was packaged, it was kinda scrunched up for mailing, as a result, one of the smaller branches died. But it didn’t really affect the plant as a whole.
Just what I was lookinf for
I needed an evergreen that would tolerate varying conditions in a southern-facing window box. I knew that a juniper would look great, but worried that I would not be able to give it enough water - junipers usually do NOT like to be dry. The planter is too high up for me to water it daily. But this one is not as water needy. It looks fantastic, stays neat, and giving it the water it requires once a week is easy. A really healthy plant, it was in great shape when it arrived even though it was shipped in the middle of a really hot summer. 100% satisfied!!!
