For your viewing pleasure, here's a photographic story of me breaking down a huge garden juniper and potting it late last year.
Sapporo for scale :)
Pretty gnarly trunk in there
Had to slice up the nursery pot to get it out
Taking a saw to the mass of roots
Finally got it split up!
This is the tree I've been waiting to grow!
- 1 part diatomaceous earth (NAPA oil dry)
- 1 part crushed granite (chicken grit)
- 1 part pine bark nuggets (sifted the dust and big chunks)
