Punica granatum

 

Pomegranate

Punica. granatum is a rounded shrub. The leaves are shiny, narrowly oblong, and bronze in Spring, turning green. In Summer funnel-shaped red flowers appear, followed by red-brown round fruits with edible seeds. Can be grown outdoors in mild climates, but not frost - hardy, so would need protection. In order for fruit to ripen Autumn temperatures of 13 - 16 degs. are required. In cooler climates, grow in a conservatory or greenhouse.

Flowering

From Early Summer TO Late Summer

Pomegranate trees flower in Summer. The flowers are orange-red and funnel-shaped

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Pomegranate trees are not frost-hardy, and so in cooler climes will need to be grown under glass, or in a conservatory. In mild climates plant in fertile, well-draining soil in a sunny, sheltered site.

 

Propagating by semi-hardwood cuttings

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Autumn. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
