Wonderful Pomegranate Care Guide

Our Wonderful Pomegranates bloom in the spring with incredible Flaming, Orange, Red Blooms that last all the way into summer, producing mature fruit in the fall and can be picked before they’re fully ripe, although it is best to wait until the fruit is fully ripe for better tasting fruit. Our Pomegranate tree is not a dwarf trees or grafted, but are propagated by hardwood cuttings and are self pollinating and its size can be restricted with pruning.



Planting
Pomegranates require well drained soil. They will not thrive in heavy clay soils. If you do have heavy clay soils, we recommend planting your  tree in a raised bed. The raised bed should be at least two feet above the existing grade of the soil. They are best grown in cactus palm and citrus potting mix in a well draining pot and can be planted in zones 8-11

Watering
Do not overwater  Pomegranate trees! Over watering trees in the ground  in certain soils is often the number one factor in causing root rot. Pomegranate prefer  deep root watering.  
Regular watering helps the tree to establish a deep root system and grow large fruits. Weeds around the tree's base compete for water and nutrients, so pull them up as they appear.

Pruning
Pomegranate should be pruned to encourage compact growth,  in early spring before new leaves appear. Prune dead and damaged stems.

Fertilizing
Pomegranate trees benefits from spring fertilization with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer. In early spring, before new leaves appear, apply a granular, general-purpose fertilizer


 

Note on Dormancy:

 

Dormant trees still need to be protected (winterized) to remain healthy and free from diseases and insects.  Prune dead branches in the later part of fall. Foliage and branches that are in contact with soil invite undesirable pests. Therefore it is best to  keep the winterized potted dormant tree clean of debris. Set it in an unheated garage or basement and allow it to go dormant for the winter months. Water the tree as you would normally would through dormancy. It helps to have a moisture meter because in cooler climates the tree will not need to be watered as often. Water the dormant tree when meter reads 40%. Fertilize dormant trees in February.
