Juniper horizontalis – problem

Jacinta Byrne asked 12 years ago

There is a bad looking split in the base of this juniper. I’m wondering if there is anything I can do to save it and if it’s not a problem, is its position of hanging over a wall in a sunny, well-drained (almost dryish…) spot not a good one for it?

There is nothign much can be done. Juinper has a natural tendency to split, perhaps die back perhaps not. In nature, you see them gnarled, sinuous and with dead bits. Tidy up the feather shoots.
