    Bare rooting junipers

    Bare rooting is a bad idea for some species and most conifers don't like it. Actually, westerners repot conifers way too often. Pines in small posts around every 3 years, larger pines up to ten years between repots. Not joking., that's how we do it here. Except for the dead of winter you can...

    Juniper “Yard”Dori substrate ?

    That's generally the best time. If you get into the dry summer of the cape giving them shade in the midday sun for the first year after collecting would be good. Try to collect as much root as you can. Also there's plenty of vynbos species in the cape that can be used for bonsai too so play...
