A pomegranate tree will usually grow to around 3-7m if left to it's own devices. Their flowers are very big and pretty and the fruit looks like something out of another era.

If you wanted to keep it smaller then you have 2 options 1 is root restriction to do this just grow your pomegranate in a pot.

The second is pruning. Like most fruit trees they love to be pruned and you can keep it quite small this way.

I am often amazed at the popularity of the Pomegranate at Daleys we have had people pay extraordinary freight just for this one tree because they don't seem to be able to get them anywhere else and to them it is worth it because they really love this plant.

Here is a list of the different varieties:

It is usually the Pomegranate Wonderful that is most popular

The 2 year-old pomengranate tree in my backyard is about 1.4m tall. Some lower leaves are turning yellow. I have recently fed it aquasol and mulched with cow manure. Just wondering if this yellowing of leaves is normal since it is autumn. And when should i prune it?

Thanks!

Pomegranates normally loose their leaves once it gets colder au0rey. Come spring and it will send out lots of lovely green shoots.
Not sure about when to prune it though.

I have a 4 year old Pomegranate tree. Last year it produced one fruit which was not juicy and seeds were hard. This year it has three fruits. How much and how often should I water the plant ? What fertiliser should I use to get juicy and tasty fruits ?

If it has only been in a year and you get most of the roots i dont think a heavy prune will be neccecary they are tough(others may disgree i have only transptanted cuttings that have rooted and found next to no transplant shock)if you are concerned you have damaged the roots to much, perhaps just thin out some of the middle branches to start creating its future shape. Some recomend keeping it uncluttered in the middle to let in the sun, unless you want a different shape. cheers ally

Today when I to Laverton Market there were hundreds of bare-root trees so I decided to buy a Wonderful pomegranate because I love pomegranates. Anyway, I soaked it in a dilute Seasol solution for 2 hours then planted it in a 35cm wide pot. The tree is 1m high. Can anyone, from this, tell roughly how old the tree is and consequently when it will bear.

Hi Nick,

I have one tree, used to be in a 50 cm pot for about 3 years (had a couple of fruits) but now in the ground. I would say yours is about 2 years old and with a bit of luck you probably will have some fruits next year.

Good luck.

You could let them develop if you like, just give the tree some potash as top dressing and water in well.

Happy growing.

Parr's Nursery in Bermagui Rd, Cobargo (NSW) sells this and some other interesting new introductions from the former Soviet Union trials - but I guess you are looking for prunings rather than established plants by the sounds of it.

Tried my first pomegranate in 30yrs yesterday....they have changed for the better!? It was from California and it was very good.
Anyway, I planted some of the seeds (of course! lol) do they come true to type..?

What's the best (dark red) one we can get in Aust at present? Thanks :)

If it was from California, it was probably Wonderful, the leading american variety- often sold here under the name "Royal Pom". Its the only variety I've tried but apparently the Russians believe their Rosavaya is better (lol), im also growing a variety called Elche so hopefully ill taste some fruit by winter! Im not sure if pomegranates come true-to-type but i planted plenty of Wonderful seeds and they germinated easily with about a month of cold stratification. :)

I bought a new pomegranate tree recently and planted it from the pot about a week ago. The tree's leaves are now starting to turn yellow. It flowered and has a very small fruit. I water it regularly and the new olive tree next to it is very happy.

Should I add something to tree? Fertiliser or something it may lack?

Maybe check the soil pH first, before adding anything else. I find a lot of my problems are often caused by acid soil, or occasionally too alkaline soil.

One of my potted comfreys had yellow leaves - the others were OK. I added wood ash, and it seems to be coming good.

More likely to be a drainage problem ;acid soil is rarely an issue in Oz (but if it is below 5,5 may be worth fixing).

Lize, all of my pomegranate behaved same like yours - leaves turned yellow after transplanting.. Probably its due to transplant shock... I'll suggest not to put it in full sun, may be just give it morning sun for few hours initially... All of my 3 plants started putting new growth after few weeks of transplant... Good luck

One more thing - give it seasol once a week...

My pomegranates keep splitting open before they are quite ripe, letting the ants in. The tree grows really well, there is always plenty of fruit on it, the soil is heavy clay and we are in the south west of Western Australia. How can I prevent this.

I bought a small pomegranate plant from Daley's back in October, potted it up, and it hasn't grown since. Some of the leaves have turned yellow and even fallen off. I am concerned because I'm fairly certain it hasn't grown at all in this time. Kept it out of full sun initially and everything. Anything I should be doing? Fertiliser?

Hard to say, Isabel; can you post a photo? We were saying on another thread that some of the nursery's mix are quite dry so someone actually shake all the soil off before repotting. I never did that but I do soak the plant well then repot in premium mix and water in with Seasol. Leave drop is sometimes not a problem if you see new shoots coming after it; have a good look. I wouldn't overdo fertilisers until you see growth but if you do apply any, make it organic and slow release. What position is it in and have you had sudden drop of temperature since you bought it? What is your watering regime?

Db says...
I'm growing 4 different pomegranate and all dropped lots of leaves after transplanting in bigger pot, so I'm guessing it's just transplant shock. I'll suggest you keep giving seasol once a week untill you see new growth. After couple of months mine started growing very well, one is holding one fruit as well ( within 6 months of purchase). Also, consider transplanting it in ground where they thrive. All of mine were in in pot initially for couple of months and they did not grow much. I transferred all but one in ground and they are now growing vigorously but the one in pot is hardly putting any new growth. Good luck.

They don't like being over watered either...easy to do when planting out etc as we tend to give more water in those instances...the leaves will yellow and drop also if drainage is poor - like lenn mentioned...

They are super tough and need little TLC...have seen them growing wild (and fruiting) on the roadside in a hot climate without water for up to 6 months at a time...

Time may tell Db - nothing is ever certain as a one size fits all with growing....but it's certainly not necessary to water them everyday (if you are on a "water budget/restrictions" that is..)
When the fruit are filling out it might be good to give them extra water tho...

Thanks for the responses, everyone. I will get some Seasol. It was in a position where it got approx mid morning to mid afternoon sun. Somewhat protected. Watering regime is usually at nighttime and not every night, couple of times a week. I have the intention of getting it in the ground eventually but was hoping to just grow it up a bit more before transplanting. Will report back with how it's going in a few weeks. Thanks again!

Amanda is right in that they are quite tough. I've seen them growing out of a crack in a stone wall and fruiting! I've also uncovered one under decades of weeds (vines) and within months of TLC it was flowering its head off.

Morag says...
Just wanted to share - you can cultivate cuttings from an established pomegranate tree - when pruning, pull off the side shoots, dip in rooting powder, and plant in good quality potting mix. Water initially, then put the pots out in the garden, in a sheltered position - I've had these flower! Dwarf trees will give poor quality fruit - better with the 'real' trees, unless you only want for decoration. Pretty orange flowers will turn into pomegranates. The less you fuss with them, the better. Mine grew best in full sun, shaded from the western sun. Don't overwater.Good luck! (Pomegranates are excellent for inhibiting tumours - and very high in antioxidants. Morag

I have two pomegranate trees in araluen, NSW, which are about four years old now and about 1.5m tall. They have both produced flowers but no sign of fruit. Im pretty sure i bought fruiting varieties so am not sure why these are not producing anything. Do they need cross fertilisation? We put plenty of cow manure around the base every now and then and the trees themselves look healthy. Any advice would be much appreciated

The pomegranate will need a certain good size before the flowers can result in fruit. Perhaps some calcium and carbon can help a bit too,they are often helpful in strength of trees.

I have that problem with my wonderfull variety in Eden it is only at the very end of the season the fruits ripen enough to loose the bitterness, unfortunately wonderfull needs a long hot summer. I have a shepards red that ripens earlier and has better fruit. I am trialing seven varieties in Eden and so far Shepards red is the only one i can recomend for cooler costel summers.

I live in Perth, where we have more than enough sun and heat. I have a pomegranate tree in a pot, receives full sun from ealry morning until about 2pm. With the three days of close to 40 I watered the pomegranate every day. Yesterday it looked very sad, wilted from top to bottom. The soil was wet and I realised the pot was blocked at the bottom, which makes me think the leaves are wilted because it was water logged for a few days. My hubby drilled two more holes in the bottom of the pot and the water all drained out. Will it recover or have I just managed to drown my tree?

Lize, it should recover, make sure your soil is not water resistant or the pot rootbound but do make sure it is not too windy where you keep it too- wind can dry out a pot in minutes as can over 40deg days and you are having your share of those. Pomegranate are fairly drought hardy once established but definitely do not like wet feet so keep it on the dry side of damp for a few weeks to let it recover.Maybe some seasol in the next watering will help the roots recover?Good luck.

Concerned about my pomegranate tree I planted as a bare rooted tree back in June. It's now mid October, and It's the only tree in my garden that hasn't come out of dormancy. It's in a full sun position, and we've had plenty of days in the 20s now, including 2-3 days in a row around 30 degrees this week. I cut back one of the branches to see if it was green, and it was. So seems like the tree is still alive, but not wanting to wake up! Any advice on whether or not this tree still has a hope? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like its dead - can happen with bare rooted pommys persimmons and almonds - you are safer to buy potted up - take it back for a refund and get a potted one.

I wouldnt think so because it is commonly seen to fruit as single garden trees, with no other obvious other pomegranate close by.

Hi everyone

I've got a one and half years old 'Wonderful' pomegranate bearing fruit at the moment planted in a 45 ltr pot. I made a special potting mix for it; Scott's premium (blue bag) potting mix, mixed with perlite, crushed eggshell, peat moss and fertilized with sudden impact by Neutrog. Works a treat. Fruited immediately just after 1-1/2 yr from purchase. Picture is included for your perusal.
