    Juniperus sabina var. Buffalo

    A nursery near me is (sadly) going out of business and they have a ton of Sabinas for a whopping ten bucks for a decent 2 gal. I’ve pretty much limited my collection to Shimpaku and a couple of Procumbrens, so have no experience with them. The foliage looks quite nice, almost as good as my...

    “Grey Owl” juniper

    The species of this cultivar are disputed although it’s listed as Juniperus virginiana from the nursery trade. Some argue there is chinensis in there. One thing I will say is it doesn’t have all the dreaded qualities of a virginiana. I bought this for $10 at a local hardware store a few months...

    Help with juniper ID and styling advice

    Hey guys, I was told by the nursery that this is Sea Green Juniper but it didn’t have a tag so I was just looking for a second opinion. It’s in a 15 gal pot and is heavy as hell. Good movement in the trunk but I’m thinking the largest branches are a bit straight and lacking in secondary branches...

    Only gravel, no soil (?)

    Hi everyone, I'm a first-time bonsai owner - trying very hard to keep my first one! I received a Juniper (Juniper procumbens nana) a few days ago. To my surprise, and contrary to most of what I have read, it came potted with only gravel - no soil whatsoever. I contacted the shop who my friend...

    Hi all, For Father's Day, everyone left me alone (just the way I like it!) so I thought I would try a first bonsai. This is my first post here, so I hope the pix come out ok. Yes, yes, I know that some here really don't like Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) as a bonsai. Nonetheless...

    Styling Advise on an Unknown Collected Juniper

    Our Juniper’s needles at the tip are turning brown - is it normal?

    I’m attaching a few photos. Only the tips have started to turn brown. This has been the case for the last 4 weeks and it hasn’t spread and the brown needles haven’t really fallen off (other than a few). I believe I’ve been watering it when the soil starts getting dry (although sometimes it’s...
