Bottom Half Of Rocket Junipers Dying Out

Question From: S. Morris - Northville, Michigan, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, We have a grouping of Rocket Junipers in our back yard. They are about 8 " tall now and seem to be dying out at the bottom 1/2 of the shrub. I've sprayed them with a general anti-pest spray but no improvement. Any ideas? Thank you. Scott

A: Sounds like deer . It's not wise to spray an insecticide unless you can identify the pest. I use PlantSkydd animal repellant to keep deer away. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
