Best Growing Conditions
They will thrive in large pots and the garden in warm, sunny spots. They prefer free-draining, moisture-retentive soil, and will establish fastest in soil which is a little acidic. For the best chance of fruiting, plant your pomegranate in a greenhouse or by a sunny window. Choose an area in full sun. Dig a hole twice the size of the root-ball and add loam-based compost or well-rotted manure. Spread the roots out as you place the pomegranate tree into the hole, then refill the hole to the base of the stem with a mixture of soil and compost. Press the soil down gently with the heel of a boot and water well. Water well in the first few months, and frequently during the summer if the weather is particularly hot or dry. Every autumn, treat your pomegranate tree to a generous helping of mulch or well-rotted compost. In the winter, protect young pomegranate trees from frost and very cold temperatures by wrapping them in a horticultural fleece. Pomegranate trees are quite self sufficient and require very little pruning. During the summer months, remove any suckers, and in the late winter or early spring remove crossing, damaged, diseased or dead shoots and branches. Pomegranate fruits are delicious eaten ripe from the tree, but if you have an especially abundant harvest, you can use them to add colour, texture and crunch to dishes. Sprinkle the seeds over salads, or toss through grains and rice dishes.
