Product Information

It would be easy to ignore Pomegranates as a fruit that can be grown in the UK, but you would be wrong. Yes, they do need hot summers and warm spots, but will crop here, and produce spectacular flower as a bonus, so also have good ornamental value.

A highly attractive feature tree with the added bonus of producing glossy, versatile fruits in autumn each year! With deep green foliage and bright orange flowers in summer, it will look great in your garden for years to come.
The leathery skinned, glossy fruits ripen in the sun each summer and have a wonderful flavour.

Pomegranate bushes love hot summers and your bush will thrive in a sunny spot it is perfect for a patio pot. Easy to grow and completely hardy in UK (-7-10C), Pomegranates will easily tolerate our British winters and just need those long hot summers we all look forward to, to maximise fruit yields.

The fruits can be used in cooking sweet or savoury and taste great when made into refreshing, fragrant pomegranate juice! They are super-healthy and packed with antioxidants.

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 orange fruits, which need to be left on the tree as long as possible in autumn to ripen.

Supplied as a standard tree in a 22cm pot, 1.4m tall including pot.

Top Tips

  • Choose hottest, sunniest spot in a pot - or in a conservatory or greenhouse.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your pomegranate standard:

  • Your Pomegranate Trees is best grown in a container where it can be grown outside during the summer and moved indoors ahead of colder weather.
  • For outdoor or indoor pomegranate trees grown in containers, you will need around a 45L (10 gallon) container. Set the root ball into the pot and fill in around the roots with the soil to the top of the container but not covering the trunk.
  • Water the new tree in well and lightly tap the soil down to eliminate any air pockets and to settle it around the roots.

Aftercare advice for your pomegranate:

  • Pomegranates are self-pollinating, so you only need one to set fruit and are relatively hardy so will bear fruit from their second year onwards if kept happy.
  • Pomegranates need full sun to reach their best so keep outside where possible and if inside place near a bright, sunny window.
  • If growing your pomegranate outside, keep an eye on the weather report and if the temperature drops below 4°C (40°F) move the plant indoors to a sunny window.
  • Water the tree deeply about once a week, possibly more often during peak summer months.
    Fertilize the tree with half cup of 10-10-10. Spread the fertilizer atop the soil and two inches away from the trunk.
  • Water the food into the soil. During the first two years of the tree’s growth, feed in November, February, and May, and thereafter fertilize only in November and February.

Pruning Advice for your standard pomegranate:

  • Prune out any crossing branches or shoots to three to five per branch after the tree’s first year. Prune out any dead or damaged limbs in the late winter.
  • Prune out suckers to create a more tree-like appearance.
