Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Juniper Skyrocket in a location that receives partial sun, full sun if possible, to promote faster growth. Soil preference is not an issue with this variety.

Then, dig the hole twice the width of the root ball and deep enough for the soil line around the trunk of the tree so that it sits even with the surface of the surrounding ground. Tamp the ground around the Skyrocket by hand to remove any air pockets that may have formed in the soil.

2. Watering: A thorough watering once a week will help keep the soil properly moist around your Skyrocket Juniper. Water the tree regularly for the first two years of growth (about once or twice weekly) - this will help the tree’s roots system develop and increase the tree’s drought tolerance.

3. Fertilizing: Use a granulated fertilizer specifically formulated for evergreens, and apply once in the early spring in accordance with the package directions.

4. Pruning: Though the Juniper Skyrocket can tolerate pruning, the tree actually looks best when allowed to grow and assume its natural shape.

Pleasantly Surprised

I was hesitant to purchase trees from an online store, but I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered 8 of the 4-5ft Skyrocket Junipers on a Friday; was notified that they shipped on the next Monday; and they were delivered 3 days later on Thursday. The packaging was excellent, and the trees looked healthy with the roots still being moist. A couple of them were around 5ft, but most were 4ft. The burlap bag made them less messy to carry and the planting directions were easy to follow. Skyrocket Junipers Skyrocket Junipers Review
