Review of Blue Rug Juniper {3 1/2 in. Pots, min 25}

So far so good

I have very little experience with planting/gardening but everything seems to be fine with this order. I've looked around and this website was the best bang for the buck I could find in regard to creeping junipers. Will order again.
I've read that they are supposed to be planted about 5 feet apart and in staggered rows. My question is, are the rows that are in line with each other supposed to be 5 feet apart, or are they supposed to be 5 feet apart from the rows in which they are staggered with?

Not sure where you got the idea to plant them five feet apart, most people plant them 1-2 feet apart (as we suggest on the "Specs" tab). It would take many years for them to fill in if spaced five feet apart. Perhaps you read that they will eventually reach a spread of five feet during their 20- to 30-year lifetime. The choice of whether to stagger row is a subjective one, whatever looks good to you - I usually stagger rows because then if you are off a little in your accuracy of spacing it is not as apparent.
