Hello. My name is Nicholas Staddon, I'm with Monrovia. Today, we're going to talk about how to plant a pomegranate tree. You're probably saying well it doesn't look like much to me right now, but because we are in early winter. So pomegranates are deciduous. And this is their very very best time to do the planting. If you plant in the fall or early winter it still allows the plant to develop a really good root system for fruiting next year. This particular pomegranate is called the angle red. An angle red is just a fantastic plant, probably ripens about three weeks in front of other pomegranate. But we're talking about planting. Dig the hole about two and a half time the size of the root ball. You see here the root ball. And what we're going to do is we're going to remove her very gently from the container. Always check you've got a nice root system, lots of healthy roots in there. Place her in the ground. Never plant your plant below the actual soil line. Good mulch, OK. Put the mulch in the hole and as you put the mulch in the hole, now I'm a real big believer in slow release fertilizer. A little bit of slow release fertilizer in there. Spread the mulch around the plant. A little more fertilizer. You can hear her going oh, yum, yum, yum, love that fertilizer. She'll thank you for that when she starts growing in the early spring. Now you'll notice here I'm leaving a little bit of an indentation. We're going to create a trough, and that's where we're going to have a nice deep watering afterwards. And a little bit more fertilizer, and it's as easy as that. This is Nicholas Staddon with Monrovia and how to plant a pomegranate tree in your garden.
