I have had more of my customers with happy healthy junipers find that about now - from early March through to early May - their trees can rapidly go downhill. It's because of the changing conditions we experience in our homes this time of year and for our junipers, it's a perfect storm.
Spider mites will haunt the underside of the foliage and are most often given away by the webs you’ll see all over your tree when you put your glasses on and take a close look. If you cared to give the plant a shake over a white surface you’ll probably see these tiny reddish assassins scurrying around. Squash away or wash away!
