Plant Info

It would be easy to ignore Pomegranates as a fruit that can be grown in the UK, but you would be wrong. Yes, they need hot summers and warm spots, but will crop here, and in any case produce spectacular ornate flower dispalys in Summer, so have good ornamental value. They are pretty hardy in UK (-7-10C), they just need those long hot summers we all look forward to to maximise fruit yields. 

We have teamed up with the largest comemrcial Pomegranate tree grower in Spain, to provide these top quality trees that they would supply to farmers planting pomegranate orchards. They produce a slow growing tree with good shape, ready to bear fruit in 2 years or so. The variety 'Wonderful' is one of the best new varieties for combined flowering and fruiting and is the staple of the Pomegranate juicing industry, renowened for it's vitamins and health benefits.

We suggest growing in a large pot, in well-drained compost, so you can move it into protection in Winter, not to protect from frost, but to get it growing as soon as possible in Spring. Outdoors they are very late back into leaf, so you lose valuable growing season time. They will produce their dark orange to red flowers in July, and then set and produce small reddish irange fruits, which need to be left on the tree as long as psosible in Autumn to ripen.

- Service rating : good service
Product : leaves dropping off hope this is normal for autumn !!
+ Service rating : Absolutely excellent - I originally ordered a lemon and lime tree which are fabulous and I was so impressed that I then ordered the Chelsea fig tree followed by the dwarf peach and pomegranate tree. Everything has been fabulous and very healthy - my lemon tree is huge and growing profusely in its pot - the lime tree is also big with lots of blossom on and my fig tree is very big and lush with 8 figs on already - I have had these three trees about three months now and I am so impressed - they are all growing extremely well. I have just taken delivery of the peach tree and pomegranate tree and am very happy. You Garden is my first choice now for plants.
Product : Again another healthy plant from you garden - it's a little bit thinner and not quite as lush as the other trees I have ordered, but I think that is down to the type of tree itself. Very happy with my purchase though and will certainly be ordering from you garden again.
++ Service rating : After some initial hic-ups, the service has been very good
Product : Growing well and looking forward to it`s flowers
+ Service rating : Excellent customer service and very quick delivery
Product : A decent size specimen can't wait for it to flower
+ Service rating : The service provided was excellent and in my personal humble opinion, its as good as it gets.
Product : The plant was good, but certainly not as strong as looked in the images.
