How to Care for Wichita Blue Juniper

Be sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving for years to come!

How do I plant Wichita Blue Juniper Trees?

How do I plant Wichita Blue Juniper Trees?

First, you'll want to choose an ideal location for your Wichita Blue Juniper Trees to thrive. We recommend an area with full sun for the thickest, healthiest foliage, but they can tolerate some shade. Check for adequate soil drainage, and amend the soil with pine fines or gypsum if needed, to break up any clay. If you plan to plant your Blue Point Juniper near your house, stay at least 3 to 4 feet away from the wall and check how dense the soil is around your foundation. Then, dig a hole twice as wide as your new tree's root ball. Position the root ball in the hole so the potting soil top is a 1/4 inch above ground level, then backfill with amended soil and water thoroughly. Use a starter fertilizer like Biotone Starter Plus for an additional boost.

How do I fertilize Wichita Juniper Trees?

How do I fertilize Wichita Juniper Trees?

Upright junipers such as Wichita Blue Juniper Trees grow best if they are fertilized lightly in the spring once frost has passed with a well-balanced, extended-release, fertilizer such as Espoma Tree-tone or Holly tone to provide the extra acid that junipers crave. Fertilize Blue Point Juniper Trees again in late summer to mid-fall. Applying a slow-release, balanced fertilizer once a year is probably the simplest solution. Acidic fertilizers like Espoma Holly Tone are well balanced for a Wichita Blue Juniper Tree. A less expensive fast release fertilizer such as a 10-10-10 will work just as well if applied twice during the early spring and early summer.

How often do I water my Blue Point Juniper Trees?

How often do I water my Blue Point Juniper Trees?

During planting and the initial establishment, they should be watered regularly. Wichita Blue Juniper Trees have a very fibrous root system and therefore need the additional water during establishment. We recommend about once or twice a week in the first 60 days, then back off to a few times a month for the next four months. After that time, your tree should be established and really only need extra watering in extreme heat or drought conditions. It is always best to err on the side of caution and water your Wichita Blue Juniper Tree a little less, especially if you live in an area with lots of rain or a high water table. Wichita Blue Juniper Trees can succumb to root rot if there is not adequate soil drainage.

How to mulch Wichita Blue Juniper Trees?

How to mulch Wichita Blue Juniper Trees?

We highly recommend that you mulch your Wichita Blue Juniper Trees with either a ground hardwood mulch or a ground cypress mulch. Any type of mulch will do but cypress or hardwood mulch will be of a higher quality and provide better nutrition overall as they breakdown. Mulching helps to keep weeds away which will compete with your new investment for water and nutrients. It will also help maintain an even temperature around the fibrous root system, and help conserve water. A 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch is sufficient, extending just past the tree's drip line. Its better to leave a one inch gap of space between the mulch and the stem or trunk of the plant in order to prevent disease and to not inhibit growth.
