Question: dwarf pomegranate
hi, I was given 3 dwarf pomegranate saplings, a couple of 30cm, and one maybe one meter high (this one with fruits attached). They all seem dry, the leaves are very dry, and cutting a twig I saw inside the branch a green but very light color ... are they perhaps dead or almost?
Answer: dwarf pomegranate
the pomegranate is a deciduous plant, therefore in autumn it loses all the foliage and goes into vegetative rest; if the plants have the foliage completely dry, but still attached, it is likely that they have also undergone a water stress, but try to ask who gave them to you.
In any case, try to prune the plants and keep them in a fairly moist soil. However, consider that you will have to avoid wetting the soil if it does not dry out, and only in spring can you understand if the plants have recovered.
