Question & Answer

I planted my pomegranate in Winter. It seemed to survive our frosts and the stem began to shoot leaves in Spring, but then they died off and leaves and stems began to shoot from lower down toward the roots of the plant. Is this a grafted plant and will it still fruit & flower from these new lower limbs? From: CASTLEMAINE VIC

all the pomegranates are cutting grown so your tree will be a Ben Hur no matter where it shoots from. Cut the dead wood back to the healthy new growth.

Hi, could you pls recommend the best type of pomegranate for our coastal Sydney garden? We would like to purchase 6. From: Vaucluse NSW

All varieties of pomegranate would be suitable for the Sydney climate. The varieties differ in size, taste and how they crop. You can read each of their descriptions on this page http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/pomegranate.htm Since you can often buy the wonderful variety in shops how about you try the other varieties. I would get 2 of the: #PomegranateElche2759 2 of the: #PomegranateRosavaya901 1 of the: #PomegranateBen2683 and 1 of the: #PomegranateAzerbaijani2682

So my mum bought this plant from a girlfriend who grow them. The friend takes cutting and nurse them to these 1.5m size plants. When I saw mum's plant, I made an offer for it! The fruit on this plant was larger than the size of my fist! The taste of these fruits are amazing. So sweet. 

I was told to use sheep manure every spring and powerfeed every second week during spring. The plant was already pruned for me so I didn't have to worry about it for another year. It is now re-planted in a big 50L half wine barrow with lots of mulch and compost. I am seeing new growth now that the harsh winter weather is over.
