While in the past we’ve only carried the popular Lady Dwarf variety, we’ve recently expanded our inventory to include more varieties of Pomegranate plants like Salabatski and Kara Bala Miursal.
How to grow and care for Pomegranate Plants
- Plant in a normal, large-sized pot. Use good potting soil, such as a mixture of compost, sand, soil, peat moss and vermiculite (See References).
- Water once for every two weeks, letting the soil dry between these times. By keeping the plant in full blasting sunlight with a fairly warm temperature.
Light/Watering planting instructions / plant care:
Full sun to partial shade. Water thoroughly after planting and give new plants a good soaking once a day during summer, unless rainfall is plentiful (more than 1 inch per week). Established plants can generally get by on less water, but most grow best if the soil remains evenly moist. As long as the vines are growing hardy weed control wont be a problem. Drip line irrigation is the preferable method. Site selection and preparation: When choosing a site full sun is preferable with afternoon shade.
Rich loose top soil is preferred as long as it drains freely. Ph requirements are 5.0-6.0 Plant spacing: Plants should be spaced 24″ apart in any fashion desired. Fertilize in early spring with a light coverage of a balanced, organic fertilizer. If a concentrated, water-soluble fertilizer is used, please follow the manufacturers’ recommendations carefully. Continuing Care: Easy to grow.
Pests and diseases:
Pests and diseases are few and far between if using irrigation/drip irrigation it is better to keep evenly moist.
