Taylor junipers growing together

Q&A

Dennis, I live in wisconsin 60 miles north of Milwaukee. I had 8 taylor junipers planted on sept. 15th 4 ft. apart. How long before they grow together? How much can I fertilize? Thank you Mike -

    Great question. Keep in mind Taylor is probably less than three feet wide at maturity. So I am guessing three to five years. We have a row of three planted in a demonstration garden about three feet apart. They have been in the ground about four years and are just about touching. We fertilize each spring. Hope that helps - Dennis Johnson County Extension
