I have always been very apprehensive when re-potting Junipers and this tree was no exception when I re-potted in April. Thankfully it has responded well and is growing vigorously. I had intended to leave it alone for a full growing season without any work whatsoever to allow it to recover but it has done so well I thought I should give some of the growing tips a light trim.
I have removed any shoots that were growing downward and lightly thinned some of the thicker pads. The tree needs a comprehensive re-wire come the end of the season but I think that otherwise it is progressing nicely.
The pics don’t show much difference but I did take out quite a lot of foliage.
I still have decisions to make about how to make the most of the deadwood
