Juniperus scopulorum 'Skyrocket' Problem

Hi Everyone,

I am using my wifes blog forum thingy to try and find some information on the  Juniperus scopulorum 'Skyrocket' as I helped my parents plant a row of these (approx.10) to potentially block out a neighbouring building. The trees have been planted in a deep soil depth and have been watered on a regular basis since planting. The problem is that they are now starting to brown and look to be dying. The trees have been planted in March / April of this year and were reasoably green when planted. They were purchased at 7ft so obviously these cost quite a lot of money so therefore would like to try and save them! If anyone can suggest anything or forward any issues which you may have experienced with this breed of tree it would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards

    I would think that if they were purchased from a reputable supplier, and the aftercare instructions have been followed, then the supplier should be contacted either for advice or with a view to a refund.

    I have 2 of those. Still green though looked sad for a while after planting last year. They need well drained soil, full sun and in a sheltered spot. My guess is the ground is either too wet/dry or the wind is getting to it.
