Please tell me that you've got those roots wet by now... these kinds of junipers can take a beating.. on their roots... but don't take too much foliage off.. they use foliage to power themselves. Given soil, water and sunlight, it will regenerate roots quickly. Once it's got a pot full of roots, you'll be able to start heavy styling.. that will probably be two winters from now.

Good luck, I love the big juni's!

Yep Webos and Sambow, the tree was potted quickly into a mixture of 5 parts Akadama to 3 parts Orchid bark.
Its getting a quick mist on the foliage daily and a water every couple of days (everyday if its warmer) with every 2nd water containing powerfeed.
As Alpineart has advised, im only doing alternating watering on the centre rootball, as the clay need time to dry out somewhatImage

Quick update.
Seems the 5min drive home from work was too much for the poor tree.
Ive now noticed 3 breakages at the branches joins.
