It would be easy to ignore Pomegranates as a fruit that can be grown in the UK, but you would be wrong. Yes, they need hot summers and warm spots, but will crop here, and in any case produce spectacular ornate flower displays in summer, so have good ornamental value. They are pretty hardy in UK (-7-10°C), they just need those long hot summers we all look forward to in order to maximise fruit yields.
We have teamed up with the largest commercial Pomegranate tree grower in Spain, to provide these top-quality trees that they would supply to farmers planting pomegranate orchards. They produce a slow growing tree with good shape, ready to bear fruit in 2 years or so. The variety 'Wonderful' is one of the best new varieties for combined flowering and fruiting and is the staple of the Pomegranate juicing industry, renowned for its vitamins and health benefits.
We suggest growing in a large pot, in well-drained compost, so you can move it into protection in winter, not to protect from frost, but to get it growing as soon as possible in Spring. Outdoors they are very late back into leaf, so you lose valuable growing season time. They will produce their dark orange to red flowers in July, and then set and produce small reddish orange fruits, which need to be left on the tree as long as possible in autumn to ripen.
