Care Guide for Taylor Juniper Tree


  • 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.
  • Do not pile mulch up against the trunk of the plant.


  • Thrives in full sun to partial shade.
  • Avoid planting in areas that receive less than 4 hours of direct sunlight per day.


  • Water regularly for the first few months after planting.
  • 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 fertilizer.


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