Skyrocket juniper (Juniperus scopulorum) is an extremely narrow, columnar evergreen shrub that will grow to 15 feet tall. It's an easy-care plant that is cold- and drought-tolerant, thrives in poor soils and requires little pruning. Although the easiest way to propagate the skyrocket juniper is from hardwood cuttings, it can be grown from seed. It takes two winters for the seed to germinate.
Pour the seed starting mix into a seeding flat to within 1/4 inch of the rim. Water the soil well, allowing the excess water to drain from the tray.
Push the seeds into the soil so that they are 1/2 inch deep.
Place the seeding flat outside to overwinter.
Check the soil periodically. It should remain moist, but not wet.
Move the seeding flat into an area where the seeds will be protected from squirrels and other critters in the spring. Keep the soil moist. Some of the seeds may begin to germinate, but most of them will need one more winter outdoors.
