Description

PlantNet® pomegranates are easy to grow, prolific producer of fantastic fruits. These varieties are suited to most Aussie climates, and most Aussie backyards. The only requirements for them are – full sun, frost protection, and a pot at least 400mm wide.

They will grow successfully in the same container for years but will eventually need to be either repotted or have their roots trimmed back to be replanted in fresh mix.

For best results in fruit quality, home gardeners should use controlled release fertiliser twice a year – once in early autumn and once in early spring. They should also use liquid fertilisers and soil conditioners periodically to maintain the condition of the soil.

Suitability

These varieties are suited to all areas of Australia except cold climate areas prone to frost.
