I've got to transplant a few junipers. They were one gallon plants that I
put in last year. Any suggestions for maximizing the chance for having these
things survive the process will be appreciated. I'm in a semi-arid area.
Just be sure to dig out as much of the rootball as possible and water
thoroughly when you plant them again. It shouldn't be much of a
problem since they were just planted last year, if fact, depending on
when you planted them (early in the season or late), they may just pop
out of the ground.
I would add water them really well the day before you dig them out AND buy some
"cloud cover" or other antidessicant spray it on well, let it dry, then dig.
after planting dont drown them in water. Ingrid

Dig the new holes first. If you have clay soil, be especially wary of shovel-
polishing the holes. Soak well after digging. Dig the plants up one at a time,
attempting to get the whole rootball. Do not lift by the stem or branches...
get a sling under if you can't do a direct lift of the rootball with your
hands. Transplant to a new hole, backfill, and treat as a new transplant
this year (watering, etc.). It can be helpful to orient the plants in the
same orientation they were previously (northside to northside, etc.)
