Blue Juniper advice needed....

Post  Vega on Mon Apr 14, 2014 4:05 pm

I have recently bought 2 new Blue Rug Junipers. I have repotted them in a more traditional bonsai pot. Which I pulled the root system delicately to accommodate the new pot. I am worried that I might have repotted them incorrectly. No knowing the right procedure for the repotting? Second question, I know now that the Juniper in in it's first growth of the season, and the second will be in the fall. I am excited to start pruning and shaping. What is the soonest that I can start? Being the first growth season?

Did you take any pictures of the process of repotting? However, juniper are fairly tough and forgiving, so the repotting probably went OK. What kids of soil do you have available to plant them in?

I would wait 2-3 months before doing ANY more work on these. In the meantime, if either of the Arkansas clubs (below) are withing reach of you, I'd suggest you join. Local help is the best kind of help.
