Q. Blue star juniper care
Your Blue Star Juniper is turning brown at the time of year when it should be growing well. Conifers need well drained soil and this year we have had a lot of rain in the Mid-Atlantic area. The soil is wet and not draining as it should. There is nothing you can do to save the plant. When planting conifers in the future choose a sunny spot that is well drained. You can improve drainage by adding small gravel to the soil mix and raising the plant an inch or so over the surrounding soil.
