Customer Reviews & Photos
I ordered 18 of the 1-2 ft Skyrocket Junipers. They arrived very well packaged with no breakage. They are beautiful & actually much taller - 3ft or so.
Arrived in perfect condition. Planted right away and can’t wait for it to “skyrocket” past my neighbor’s window for privacy on our back patio. Beautiful plant! Great experience
The overall experience was very well. We received 6 very healthy 4ft tall Juniper Skyrockets. I wish that the planting instructions were included in the shipment rather than having to go online to view. Very good price, trees were very healthy and are doing very well.
Experience thus far has been wonderful.
Waiting for the ship date was the worst...with the pandemic going on everything was delayed but once the tracking came in they were here in no time. I ordered 6 skyrocket junipers and they were packed neatly and absolutely no breakage. The soil was still moist and the trees looked healthy. We planted within 2 days and they are doing fantastic. Even more excited to watch them grow
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. 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.
