Does Wonderful pomegranate bloom one time or do they continue throughout the year? The new growth froze and now it is growing again. These buds were a surprise.
Pomegranates have prolonged blooms, new flowers can form over couple of months. Also, growth and bloom can slow down or accelerate depending on changes in temperature and available water.
This is my first time to grow Poms and I wasn’t sure what to expect.
Last questions. Do birds bother the buds or fruit? Do they need netting?
I’ve never seen birds bother with my Pom tree.
I’ve had birds go after the buds. There are a couple chewed up lying on my driveway beside container poms right now. But they may be in a feeding mood the because of all the ripe strawberries a few feet away.
Birds aren’t an issue for me on Poms. The only real pest of Poms in my orchard is leaf-footed bug.
