Is there a way to keep my Junipers (Skyrocket) from toppling over because of heavy wet snow? They have become too large too wrap.

The short answer... no.

If it has a few main trunks you can tie the trunks together so it doesn't get just one of them falling, but for the whole thing... no.

The important thing is to remove the snow as soon as you can after it falls. If it stays cold and you remove it, the plant should bounce back to it's proper form. If you leave it on there for a long time though, it could get stuck that way.

Consider it a chore you have to do, like shoveling the driveway. Brush the snow off the bushes.
