Care in a nutshell

Wiring: In winter (without leaves) the bonsai wire can be applied well. Be careful when bending. The woody branches break easily. Often forming with wire is avoided because sometimes a wired branch dies.

Fertilisation: Fertilize liberally from March to September with the common Bonsai fertilizers like Biogold, Hanagokoro, Liquid fertilizer

Irrigation: Do not keep too dry. Water evenly, especially before and during flowering and fruit ripening.

Pruning: The shoots are best pruned back after the first flowering (often in May-June) with sharp bonsai scissors. New flowers often form afterwards. Therefore, it is good to prune again late in the growing season. Preferably early August. The following new growth stays on the tree until winter. After the leaves have been shed, the shoots can be cut back a little more before the new shoots appear in spring. Branches are removed with bonsai concave pliers. It is advisable to apply wound sealants for bonsai to larger cuts.

Overwintering: A pomegranate bonsai is a mediterranean bonsai. That means it is not completely frost resistant. In winter, a pomegranate should have a bright and cool location with temperatures between 3 and +6°C. A cool winter garden, foil tent or greenhouse is very suitable here

Repotting: Repot a pomegranate bonsai approx. every 3-4 years at beginning of march in a well-drained bonsai soil (for example Akadama)
