Juniper Sapling

We have teamed up with gardening expert and author of ‘How to Grow Stuff’, Alice Vincent to provide tips and tricks for growing a flourishing juniper bush from sapling to shrub whether you have a garden, allotment or concrete jungle.  Once planted, each bush requires little pruning and could live up to 170 years, helping in the ongoing conservation effort to preserve British juniper which has been in sharp decline since 2014.

Alice Vincent, ambassador for Portobello Road Gin’s juniper project and author of ‘How to Grow Stuff’ added:
“As modern life gets ever faster our desire to slow down, escape our screens and reconnect with nature just gets stronger.

 

“Growing stuff is a great way to switch off and get outdoors, and juniper is an easy, tolerant plant to inspire green fingers. Whether you’ve been gardening for a while or are a complete beginner, we’re calling for gin fans to get out in the garden and to help preserve the future of our nation’s favourite tipple!”
