There are several good places online for soil, This is for your Juniper correct? [Keep in mind that I mix my own so I have no direct experience with any of these products].
What type of pots? bonsai pots, training pots?
Check these sites for soil options [There are many]
Take a look at this page: https://www.gsbf-bonsai.org/
It has a list of California Bonsai Clubs some of which may be close to you.
They may be able to provide you with the name of a bonsai retailer that is local and will save you some shipping. Consider joining a club if one is local to you.
