Lovely shrub and a good size when delivered. Already had many fruits and spread well when packaging removed. Continues to thrive. My daughter loved it!
It was in full bloom, wonderful. Well presented and safely packaged; it arrived in top condition.
Lovely plant, healthy. Great for a present
When it came it did look a little spindly but since then it is looking healthy and has put out more leaves
I didn't see it as it was a gift but Mum sounded said it was lovely.
It looked to be very good on the photos that the recipient sent; however, I didn't actually see the plant. My friend was very happy to see that it had fruited.
Comment is as before..........................
Have to see how it lasts the winter in the greenhouse but hopefully it will be great for next year.
I think I need to give it time to mature. At the moment it's a little under whelming!
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
Looking after your Dwarf Pomegranate Tree
The Pomegranate tree is originally from the Himalayas, but it has been cultivated in the Mediterranean for thousands of years and does surprisingly well here in the UK. These bushy plants are a variety called ‘nano’ that are primarily grown for their flowers rather than their miniature fruits and will make a fantastic display in a sunny spot. The small fruits are edible though and can be squeezed for their sweet/sour juice which will be enough for a zingy salad dressing or marinade.
Your plant will do best in a sunny, sheltered spot in the garden or on a patio but will also do well in a conservatory or bright room. When indoors make sure your pomegranate gets plenty of light, by putting it near a window but a little way back from the glass.
Whilst your pomegranate is in a small pot you will need to water it regularly especially if in a warm spot. Aim to water it heavily and then allow the top of the compost to dry out before watering again. Over the summer months your pomegranate will benefit from a dose of general purpose liquid feed every couple of watering’s to help keep the foliage healthy and to set flowers.
This is a dwarf pomegranate so will be a neater more compact plant that works particularly well in a pot on a patio. It can be kept outdoors in most areas of the UK, but it is best to protect it from frost in winter either with a fleece or by bringing it into a frost free shed or garage.
If the leaves start to turn a pale or mottled colour your plant needs more nutrients and will benefit from a good dose of general house plant or citrus feed every couple of watering’s until it greens up again.
If during the summer months your plant doesn’t start flowering, or the buds drop before they open, it may not be getting enough sunlight so try moving to a sunny spot and hold back on any feeding until you see flower buds begin to develop.
This is an edible pomegranate, but the fruits will never reach full size, so it is mainly grown for its abundant flowers. It is deciduous so don’t be alarmed if it starts to lose its leaves in winter.
