Chinese Juniper (Juniperus chinensis) grows best in the garden. They do require permeable, well-drained soil, somewhat clay based and none too wet. These are totally hardy plants.
Make sure the root ball of the Chinese juniper is soaked well prior to planting - stand the plant in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your juniper at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting. Improve your garden soil with the addition of some compost and peat. This conifer will thank you for a spot in full sun or partial shade.
