How to care for a bonsai from Granado
Deciduous trees withstand winters well. This makes it possible for the pomegranate, in temperate latitudes, can live all year in an outdoor situation. The tree needs a lot of light, especially to flourish. Does not support frost on the roots.
It must be watered whenever the earth begins to dry out. In summer irrigation will be frequent, especially if it is located in a sunny place. In winter, because it is a deciduous tree,irrigation will be reduced to a minimum, with the sole function of maintaining sufficient humidity in the root zone.
The pomegranates, like all the plants that bloom, they must never be paid when they are in the flowering period. Must be paid from after flowering until October, except the hottest months, which are those in which the plant is bearing fruit.
This species requires a very continuous transplant. It must be done every year without fail; the best period to do this is early spring before the plant begins to sprout. Being a deciduous tree, post-transplant problems are minimal if done at the right time.
Deciduous trees require continuous clamping only for the duration of the growing season. It must be taken into account that if you want to obtain flowers it should not be clamped from late spring to early summer, since the flower buds appear exclusively on the tips of the young shoots of the year.
