How To Care

Be sure to choose the best location for your Parson's Juniper. As long as you avoid extreme temperatures you can plant your Juniper almost any time of the year.

This juniper does best in full to part sun and adapts to any soil that is well drained. They do like a neutral to acidic soil so if you know you have an alkaline soil choose an acidic fertilizer (most fertilizers for evergreens are acidic). Junipers are great "street shrubs" as they tolerate pollution and salt well. After planting, adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch will help keep the soil moist and protect the lower branches from fungal issues. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Water your Juniper deeply a couple times a week for the first month or two. After your plants are established, they only need watered during hot, dry spells. Junipers are drought tolerant after establishing and even more so after being in the ground about two years.

Junipers are extremely hardy and versatile. When properly cared for, they rarely have issues with pests and disease. The Parson's Juniper is pest and disease resistant and deer tolerant.

Parson’s Juniper

Absolutely love the junipers we received. They were packaged well and sent timely. I will definitely give this company 5 Stars. Hope they do well here in Arkansas.

Good stock good care

I bought Parson's Juniper twice recenty. The first order was for 33 bushes - they came promptly to my home north of Chicago. Later I bought 6 more, again they were in good condition quickly. I had a bit of trouble opening the boxes - until I figured out how to remove the staples (screwdriver and big pliers) and which side to work on (open the last fold, with the box lying flat, not upright - then lift product straight up - you cannot open and end and slide them out easily) The planting instructions are good, the finished planting looks good. These junipers should survive our harsh zone 5 winter, and the deer and rabbits don't seem to eat junipers.

Lovely addition to my garden.

Transit process was fast, the plants came undamaged, carefully packaged. Both plants are beautiful and healthy, the only thing that I wish was different is the size. For the price they are both on a small side, about 1 foot wide and 1 foot tall.
