    Raynn’s Juniper Projects - Procumbens Nana & Pfitzeriana Aurea

    This will be a progression/diary thread for my two Junipers. I bought these off of ebay for what I would say is a decent enoigh price (£9.50/$12.15 each) in P9 pots - if you think its not a good deal, politely keep quiet about it, it’s the best I could do and seemed reasonable to me so I’m happy...
