Grey Owl Juniper Planting and Care

Grey Owl Juniper can thrive in almost any soil condition as long as they are well drained. Plant with your soil amended with a high quality top soil or compost. You want to have about half original soil you dig out with the amended soil.  Dig the hole about 6 inches deeper and twice as wide as the container. Make sure the top soil line of the container is not planted below your soil line. 

Grown naturally, Grey Owl can create some interesting shapes. Junipers can usually handle heavy pruning and Grey Owl is no different. Pruning can be done almost any time  of the year but is best when done in early spring and late fall. Water well the first 3 to 4 weeks until established. Grey Owl Junipers are drought tolerant once established but give them a drink with extended dry spells.
