Pomegranate Seed

Pomegranate tree can be increased sowing seeds, transplanting, suckers, cuttings and layering branches. Planting of pomegranate via scion is easiest, most scientific, most useful and most common way. Scions are provided 2 or 3 years branches, with a length of 10 to 25 cm in winter.After planting, watering can be done immediately. Irrigation is done at a distance of 8 to 10 days. The distance of trees on the row vary from 2 to 5 m. Pomegranate is grown for its fruit crop, and as ornamental trees and shrubs in parks and gardens. Mature specimens can expand sculptural twisted-bark multiple trunks and a distinctive overall structure. Pomegranates are drought tolerant, and can be grown in arid areas with either a Mediterranean winter rainfall weather or in summer rainfall weather. In wetter areas, they can be prone to root decay from fungoid illness. Assuming your local temperatures meet these requirements, you’ll need to choose a sunny spot to plant your pomegranate tree which will need at least six hours of sunlight a day. Good soil drainpipe is also important. Providing an increased garden bed that is 4 feet (120 cm) wide with a depth of 1 foot (12 cm) is the best way to ensure this.  The best soil conditions for growing pomegranates is deep clay soils.Pomegranate plants can be grown as trees or planted to form a bush. More space is needed for trees (15-18 ft / 5-6 m) than bushes (6-9 ft / 2-3 m).Pomegranates usually grow on their own rootstock, making them less susceptible to disease than trees on grafted rootstock. But since they are susceptible to damage during cold weather, plant your young trees in early spring. The soil should have been dug in advance and not be waterlogged.
