Auk, so what you did to your tree is called Shari. When they work on dead wood it is called Jin. I got it now. I still wonder about that word. I'll research it
Thanks leather back. I can create an alcove on my walkout where the juniper can be outside but still protected by the fierce winds we get sometimes. So if my plant in its pot is sitting with snow piled up around it i just dig down to the dirt and water it occasionally? That doesn't shock the roots?
