A highly attractive feature tree, Pomegranates are well-known, although not as widely grown in our gardens as they should be.
With deep green foliage and bright orange flowers in summer, your pomegranate will look great for years to come, with its shiny fruits ripening in the sun and providing a beautiful contrast to its leaves.
A tough, deciduous shrub, Pomegranate Punica 'Nana' is completely hardy when established, and will easily tolerate our British winters. Also known as the Dwarf Pomegranate, it's more compact than other varieties and for best results, grow in a warm and sunny aspect in a pot where it can be moved around as necessary before planting out when its trunk has thicker wood.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Plants like a rich soil with plenty of grit and gravel for good drainage. Although drought-tolerant when established, do keep your plant well-watered and it will flower throughout the summer.
Pomegranate bushes love hot summers and your bush will thrive in a sunny spot in the shelter of a building or ideally up against a stone or brick wall that will radiate heat back to the plant, helping to ripen the fruit and protect it from any extreme winter weather.
Supplied as an established plant in a 14cm pot, ready for planting straight out. Will reach 1-2m tall in 10 years.
