I have six large sea green junipers which are from 5-8 years old. Until now, I have successfully pruned them in early spring. However, it is about 6 weeks since I pruned them and they are rapidly turning brown and appear to be dying.
They survived the winter well and looked good until I pruned them. I did give them a more vigorous pruning then usual, but they have never reacted this way before. I do want to save them if possible. I just placed fertilizer stakes two feet from each one, but I do not know if this will help or hurt.
I would appriciate any advice.
Thank you.
