Check out this question from Lauren about her Juniper bonsai roots
Do you have a Juniper bonsai?
Hi, I have a bonsai related question and wondered if you could help? I have a Juniper and its growing fine its just it seems a bit lose at the roots not as sturdy as I think it should be. Any tips?

Thank you for your e-mail. Junipers are outdoor bonsai and like to be kept on the dryish side. They do not like to be overly wet. It is possible that after a wet winter the roots are beginning to rot. If you have an unheated glasshouse you could put it in there for a few weeks and only water when almost dry and give the roots chance to re-grow. Alternatively, you could put a polythene bag over the roots. However, you would need to make sure the soil doesn’t dry out. Hopefully we shall have some sun soon and it will be happier but I think that it is worth taking some measures.
If you have any questions regarding your bonsai please submit a comment in the box below. Many thanks
