Planting And Care

Grow Pomegranate plants in a place with full sun as it needs full sun to grow and produce fruits.

Water the plant deeply about once a week and more often during the summer months.

Fertilize the plant with organic fertilizer 2-3 times a year.

Prune out any crossing branches or shoots to three to five per branch after the tree’s first year.

Prune out any dead or damaged branches in the late winter.

Pomegranate Care

Pomegranate plants are propagated through seeds and cutting.

 

By Seed

Start pomegranate seeds indoors in mid-winter, so that they can have a couple of months to grow before spring planting season.

Simply scoop out some seeds and rinse them in cool water, then rub them with a paper towel to remove the pulp.

Allow the seeds to dry for a few days to keep them from rotting.

Plant the seeds no more than half-inch deep in lightweight, seed-starting potting soil.

Put the pot in a sunny, warm window, and keep the soil moist as your seeds germinate and grow.

For added humidity and warmth during winter, cover the pot loosely with a clear plastic bag until the seeds have sprouted.

When the weather warms in spring, you can begin gradually hardening off the plants before moving them permanently outdoors.

Even though mature plants can handle some cold, wait until freezing weather has passed before planting your seedlings.

 

By Cutting

 

Growing a pomegranate tree from cuttings requires hardwood cutting.

Take pomegranate tree cuttings in late winter.

Each cutting should be about 10 inches long and taken from year-old wood that is half-inch in diameter.

Dip the cut end of each pomegranate tree cutting in a commercial growth hormone immediately after taking the cutting.

Plant the cuttings immediately in their permanent location.

If you plant the cuttings outside, select an area in full sun with well-draining, loamy soil.

Insert the lower end of each cutting into the soil.

Arrange the level of the cutting so that the top node remains above the soil.

If you are multiple propagating pomegranate trees, not just one tree, plant the cuttings at least 3 feet apart if you wish to grow a shrub.

Plant them 18 feet apart or more if you intend to grow the cuttings into trees.
