<Tips for growing dwarf pomegranates>


Dwarf pomegranates prefer full sun. They need protection in winter in colder or frosty areas as they are slightly sensitive to cold. Avoid dryness, especially in summer. Water as necessary before the soil becomes dry.

Prepare well-drained soil to avoid excessive moisture, which can cause root rot. Water when the topsoil is dry. Water the whole shrub not directly to the base so that the water reaches the end of the roots.

Prune regularly to inhibit the shrub’s growth and maintain a small, healthy form, especially during dormancy and after flowering.

With its small size and tiny, lovely flowers, the dwarf pomegranate is an attractive plant for gardens and flower beds. Its soft flowers bring a gentle, peaceful air to their surroundings.
