RE: Junipers

junipers are great plants for containers, they can take temperature extremes
and they typically don't require much pruning.  one thing that i noticed
about them is that if they get very dried out one time during summer, the
damage can show up months later and irreversibly.  this usually manifests in
a rapid decline, a sudden brittleness and total death.

conversely, if the container is not draining and you've had a lot of rain,
then thinning of the foliage and yellowing would be expected.  if the pot is
draining properly then any amount of rain should be OK, with the exception
that it will tend to leach nutrients from the potting soil.  if drainage is
the problem you might be able to salvage the juniper by repotting it and
putting lots of rocks or pot-shards in the bottom of the planter.

Subject: [cg] Junipers


I have a question regarding junipers. I currently have a juniper planted
inside a pot in front of my house. I noticed lately the juniper is turning
yellow. Is it because it has been watered too much and not getting enough
sun? We have had some consistent rain storms here in Dallas, TX the last few
weeks. What can I do to help the juniper to turn green again?
