Mass Produced Junipers

Im sure we have all seen them,they get sold in their thousands and yet I have never seen a juniper except for some ground covers grow naturally in to these shapes. Thats right Im talking about your cascades, I bought one on ebay and got sick of its shape almost over night.

I didnt bother wiring one side of the cascade and did a radical chop on the other, I think eventually in several years it will be presentable of its species.

BTW the tree was $15.50 on ebay.

PS I keep telling my trees if they stand still they WILL get potted :)

improving, the left segment needs a bit of a "Lift" though.

Funny you should say that Kieran, I wired that one and lifted it after looking at the pic when I first posted it and you are right, it looks much better balanced (Y)
