Re: Pomegranate


A member on OFF who lives in Spain posted this photo of a pomegranate bush/tree in flower ...... thought I'd share it with you Wouldn't it be nice if your seedlings produced flowers like this

Re: Pomegranate


That's gorgeous Mags - thanks for posting the photo. Makes me want to try and grow it now - perhaps I'll send for those seeds!

Re: Pomegranate


That's how a Pom' should be Mags!
Ahh, but they've got the climate for it out there too.
Poms can be grown here in the UK,..they just tend to grow a lot faster over there!

Re: Pomegranate


Lovely picture Mags! I'd love to grow something like that but garden is too small and allotment to exposed. I'll follow Truth's 'Pomegranate Progress' instead

Re: Pomegranate


Update on the little 'uns; 8 leaves on some now and a little taller..no exciting growth spurts I'm afraid ! The little loves are just growing at their own sweet pace.

Yola there's no reason why in the future the Berkshire air and climate wouldn't nurture a Pom if you were to put it somewhere sheltered in your garden.

Re: Pomegranate


Now I'd be tempted to pot on ...... as you've got true leaves well grown.

Re: Pomegranate


Update, (altho' they're now indoors), just a handful have survived the summer; the greenfly liked nibbling on them(!) and some have succumbed to a little over-feeding, or was it over watering, hard to tell! This one will need pinching out if it makes it through the winter.

Re: Pomegranate


Update on my Pom plants, now 1 year old and branching out, slowly but surely.
