Actually I bought them last month and they are already in ground. I didn't do anything special to my pomegranate tree, but I did add pine chips and needles for the blueberry bush to increase acidity. They are looking ok. There is some new growth on both plants, but nothing dramatic. The pomegranate tree is loosing some leaves. They have turned yellow and have fallen. Anyone care to share there knowledge on the two?

I have no idea on the pomegranate. in fact, i've never even seen what one looks like!

but I do have two blueberry bushes that are about 3 yrs old now. I have them in large pots by the house, but when they go dormant, I'm going to transplant them into my garden so they can get larger. They haven't been producing much in the pots. I know when they go dormant you can really prune them down - almost like roses. They grow quickly and can get bushy fast, so you'll want to prune out some of the branches in the inside also so more sun can get in there for berry production. They do like an acidic soil, so adding pine needles, mulch, etc. will help with that. I would also get some fertilizer for blueberries, which I believe is the same stuff you'd buy for azalea's. I didn't fertilize last summer and I did not get one berry. This spring I did and I they produced berries.

Thanks Tammy.

My brother in-law had a pomegranate tree in his backyard in Oklahoma. The tree was too cute and the pomegranates were super sweet. I love the health benefits that pomegranates provide. I can't tell how old my blueberry bush is. I purchased it from the Home Depot. It seems to be growing slowly.
