I just reciently aquired a Parsons Juniper from a friend with a killer base and deadwood! The "native" foliage did not seem happy despite her care (e.g. there is still about 10% juvenile foliage, and the scale isn't reducing well). My plan was to take it from the smaller cascade pot (5.5 x 5.5 inch) it's been in for the past two years, and put it into a 5 inch x 10 inch Anderson Flat to build up vigor and top root strength. Additionally, I want to start grafting some finer foliage in the spring (either Itowigawa, or Kishu). I know you can slip pot any time of the year, but since the roots are going to have to be flattened and and loosened a bit to fit the slightly shorter height (.5 inch) can this be done now or wait until spring? If this is done in the spring, can it still be grafted around the same time, or will this be more stress?
