Customer Reviews & Photos
So far, so good!
Beautiful trees! Great service!
So far so good, they don't exactly grow fast like the description says, but all of them are coming along fine. They are way more drought tolerant than my Arborvitaes.
Very happy with the order
sky rocket junipers
I ordered 8 skyrockets 4-5ft. all where 5ft. I feed them & keep an eye-out for bagworms-other than that they are growing a good 10inches a year-very nice trees.
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.
