Pomegranate Punica Granatum 3l Pot
The pomegranate plant form is that of a small deciduous tree or large shrub and can reach heights of up to 20 feet if left allowed to grow. Pomegranates are naturally multi-stemmed but can be pruned to a single trunk. Originally grown for their fruit, they are also known for the beautiful red flowers that can occur for several months in the spring and early summer. Most commonly, they are red-orange, but white, pink, and variegated flowers may also be found.

This ancient French variety of pomegranate is very hardy and will be fine in the UK climate with fruits ripening naturally outdoors in the southern half of the country. The ‘Provence’ produces a good crop of large fruits which boast an unmistakable flesh with a sweet but sharp taste. The fruits are packed with antioxidants and noted for the health benefits.

The plants will arrive 3 years old and they generally start to produce fruit 1-2 seasons later.. They are self-fertile, however will produce a bumper crop if planted in close proximity to a pollinating partner.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

Planting and Care

These soft fruits will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 4.0 - 6.0 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade. Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering. Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant. Keep a planting distance of 1.2m.

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds by hand and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter. Aim to remove the old wood, as fruit grows on new wood. For more information on how to prune your fruit tree please click here to see our guides.

Pollination

Fruit trees will only produce fruit if their flowers have been pollinated. This is usually done by flying insects such as honey bees, bumblebees, flies, wasps etc. This tree is self-pollinating; it produces compatible flowers that can pollinate each other. However, even self-fertile varieties tend to crop better when another cultivar is planted nearby for pollination. Although this is not necessary to produce fruit, it will offer improved crops. The two trees will have to be near each other for the pollination process to be successful.

How to Plant a Potted Tree

A containerised tree can be planted at any point during the year unlike a bare root one. As long as the ground that it is planted in is not frozen or waterlogged the tree should be able to establish itself in any season. When planting your tree make sure that it has been watered and that it is in a suitable position where it can recieve plenty of sunshine and shelter from cold winds. For more information about planting your containerised tree please click here to see our guides.
