During the winter season we advise protecting the roots of the youngest species with straw or dry leaves; when planting young plants we can ensure them to a stake, which maintains them erect. Let's grow the The Pomegranate in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.These plants can be put outdoors only if any danger of freezings has gone by.
The fruit plants are fertilized using manure or other organic fertilizers; Towards the end of the winter letís plant the fertilizer at the foot of the plant.
The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. These plants are used in rock gardens. This plant in the summer assumes a red colouring; it is large in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
We suggest watering the The Pomegranate every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. From April to October letís remember to clean our orchard periodically from infesting plants, which otherwise use a part of the water and of the fertilizer that we feed our plants.
They favour dissolved soils, with an excellent drainage.
If desired, we can grow the The Pomegranate in a container. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
