Junipers are really taking off

My junipers seem to really like this warm and sunny weather we are having at the moment.  I am pinching back new shoots and growing tips on a daily basis now on my specimen trees in order to maintain them in shape and keep the growth tight.
All of these junipers are now growing in a completely inorganic growing medium ( I am using Sophisticat Pink Cat litter which is based on baked Moalr Clay) and following advise from Walter Pall's blog, I am feeding weekly and provide lots of water.  The results are encouraging so far with good foliage colour and vigorous growth.
