When To Plant Juniper And Other Evergreens

Q: When is the best time to plant Juniper. I am planning on putting it on a small slope where I cannot get any grass to grow as a ground cover. I did this at a previous home and it looked very good. Some things I read say you can plant in the Fall and then some say best in the Spring. I would like to now but don't want to spend the money and then they don't survive now Sept., 2012.


I think it's always best to plant Junipers and other evergreens in the fall. The roots continue to grow and establish until the ground freezes. Water the area well a couple of days before you plant and be sure to keep the newly planted Juniper watered. Plants can dry out in cool damp weather if it does not rain.
