#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant these special trees in full sun. They need at least six hours of direct sunlight a day...the more sun the better.

Ensure that you plant in well-drained soils that won't retain water for long after a rainfall. If needed, add additional soil in a planting mound...using Nature Hills Root Booster as a life-long support for their feeder root system.

For their first season, pay close attention to a consistent watering schedule as their roots get established. After that first season, these drought tolerant trees require low moisture and only need supplemental watering during drought.

No need to prune this choice! Just be sure to site it where it can grow to its full height and spread.

This selection is a top choice of garden designers across the country. Place your order for Taylor Juniper right away!
