Care Guide for Blue Point Juniper


  • Select an area with full sun.
  • Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and deep enough for the top of the root ball to be parallel with the ground level.
  • Plant the tree upright and backfill with excavated soil, tamping down to eliminate air pockets.
  • Soak with a hose and take care not to leave any gaps around the root ball.


  • Prefers well-draining soil.
  • Suitable for clay, alkaline, and compacted soils, avoid wet and soggy.


  • Spread a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of the plant to conserve moisture and suppress weeds.
  • Mulch your Blue Point Juniper with hardwood or cypress.


  • Thrives in full sun.


  • Water regularly during the first growing season to establish a strong root system.
  • Once established, water only during extended periods of drought.
  • Do not over-water, as this can lead to root rot.


  • Fertilize during early spring with a slow-release, well balanced fertilizer.


  • Pruning is not necessary. 
  • Avoid pruning during the hottest and coldest months to avoid strain on the tree.
