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.

Juniper Skyrocket

I ordered 18 of 1-2 ft Junipers. 16 of them arrived within 4 days in good condition (few small broken branches). I called to inquire about missing 2 trees to find out that company was out of stock in 1-2ft size. I was offered 2-3 ft replacement with no extra charge. Those arrived about 2 weeks since original purchase, and one of them had broken top of the main branch. I did not bother with replacement hoping it continues to grow well. Overall experience with company was good, and I would use their service again. However, I’m dissatisfied with the shipping company (Fedex in my case) which disregarded markings on the box and, likely, is to blame for the broken branches.

Two sturdy young trees

Package arrive torn and bent, but trees were intact inside. They are being watered in temporary pots, awaiting landscaper's arrival tomorrow. So far, so good.
