What kind of fertilizer to use on pomegranate shrub. Are they alkaline or acid plants? I have a fifteen year old bush doing well but have never found out what to feed it.


Hi, Pat --

Pomegranates are native to Iran and are pretty tolerant of all soils which aren't too wet. They prefer a neutral pH yet don't like rich soil, so you don't need to feed your pomegranate bush if it is doing well.

Did that answer your question? If not, go ahead and post any further questions as a reply below.
