I put it outside insulated in a bigger pot, watered it every few days and fertilized it once a month as I was instructed to by the website I bought my tree from because it started to turn a little brown. I am waiting on a bigger pot and planning on re-potting with new soil but any sort of help would be wonderful. I did a scratch test, It's not vivid green but there is still some slight green in the trunk but mostly brownish. I hope it's not time to say goodbye so any help would be nice! Please help!!
Good evening OP,
You said the scratch test revealed slight green, if you still have the tree you might want to keep it out in a semi-shaded area and see if it back-buds, though junipers are not notorious back-budders I have had some come back to life on me. Good luck and I'd refrain from any re-potting or pruning for now.
