Done: Gold Cone Junipers Wired Up
One of the items on my 2019 gardening to-do list (addendum) was to make sure I got around to wiring up the new Gold Cone Junipers that I planted this Spring. When I picked them up, I was drawn to the promise of their bright needles and how they filled a big part of my desire to add conifers to our landscape. In that original post, I referenced how a pro-gardener recommended that these particular junipers get wired up to avoid any sort of Winter/snow damage.
That's what this post is for: documenting that I actually wired them. The top photo shows one of the Gold Cone Junipers all wired up with a green coated metal garden wire. Compare that photo above with the photo of the same shrub in this photo. I tucked in all the leggy new growth and bound it to the core of the plant.
Here's a closer look at the wire:
The shrub in the foreground is wired up. The one in the background is not (yet!).
There were seven items on my 'to-do list addendum' for this year. I'm crossing this one off that list.
