Is my juniper dying?

  This should answer the age old question. If it looks like this. Why yes it is.

 I don't even know how to respond....
The humates might good but they're not pixie dust.

I curious if you know or have suspiciouns about what you did to kill it.

I've killed a few junipers in shallow pots and think I probably drowned them, but you are using a 'silver-bullet' collander. WUWT?

Ive seen precumbens nana trees further over the river styx make a come back, but not very often...my previous club's chairman had a knack for resurecting seemingly dead precumbens ( he would save at least 3 out of ten "lost" cases ). In any case; sorry for the loss

Hi Oso,

I thought you guys only use inorganics in your soils? is it possible to drown a juniper like this? I have a Juni in straight up compost potting soil and it has never showed any sign of over-watering symptoms. I water it once every day in the growing season and once every third or fourth day in winter. its been in this mix for 4-5 years


imho it might have been a pest or fungus that has killed M. Frary's precumbens

kind regards
Herman
