Q. I planted a pomegranate in my garden three years ago. It does bear fruit but the plant itself has not increased in size. What is wrong?
A. It is possible that the plant roots are restricted and, if so, this can cause ‘dwarfing’ or perhaps you purchased a dwarf variety without being aware of it. If, however, this is not the case and the plant roots have plenty of soil depth, feeding the plant, organically please, every couple of months or so, may help it to reach a more ‘acceptable’ height. Presumably the fruit is of a good size as you haven’t indicated otherwise, nor have you mentioned your location which is an important factor when it comes to offering advice.
