Punica Pomegranate



Fact
sheet

from David’s
Exotic Plants


Watering

Pomegranate
trees should be watered thoroughly but then allowed to dry out almost
completely before re-watering.  


Note
– they don’t like to be over-watered
, and in the rest period
(winter) they should only be watered when the soil is almost dust dry.  
When growing begins in the Spring they should be given phostrogen
feed once a week, to encourage new growth.    


Over-wintering
in the UK

Pomegranates
tend to drop their leaves in the winter months.
  Simply ensure the tree has plenty of light, ventilation
and food, and do not over-water.

They
can be kept on a south-facing sheltered garden or in a conservatory or
greenhouse not below 5?C. 



Summer
months

To
ensure the pomegranate fruits fully develop they require as much sunlight
and ventilation as possible. Feed once a week with a phostrogen feed to
help encourage flowers.    



Potting

They
require loam-based compost with either grit or bark chippings to aid
drainage.  The optimum pH is
6.5.  Pomegranate trees should
be re-potted once a year if/when the plant becomes pot-bound. 
Though if you prefer, you can plant the specimen straight outside
in a sheltered south facing garden into a very free draining compost.
