How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

Pomegranate trees need sun and heat to thrive. They should also be planted in well-drained soil. After planting, water regularly until established. Prune to a balanced form, removing suckers. Prune annually in order to encourage higher yields.

Russian Pomegranate Trees

I ordered a total of four pomegranate trees and two different varieties. I put strait in the ground as soon as they arrived. They are still alive and thriving. I was hesitant to buy from this website since I've never heard of it but as soon as I opened the box the beauty of the trees blew me away. I knew I had made the right choice. The trees arrived fast, they were wrapped perfect, they were attached to box perfectly and no broken limbs. And the trees themselves were bigger than what I had expected. One even had a little pomegranate bloom on it. Thank you so much, I will be buying more from this website. Thank you again.

I live on Long Island, New York where we have harsh winters and hot, humid summers. I never thought I could grow pomegranates in my region until I found this variety. I’ve only had it for 2 weeks now so we shall see. It arrived healthy and about 18”. I transplanted it to a bigger pot and is doing great. I’m excited to see what happens!

Couldn’t Find Pomegranates Anywhere But Here

Really wanted to grow pomegranates. Everyone was sold out. But not Plant Me Green. Got a beautiful pomegranate and planted it in a sunny spot. It’s doing very well and growing nicely.
