For some reason my dwarf Pomegranate bush flowers quite a bit but still no fruit. I've had it outside all summer and fertilized it frequently. The plant itself grows good, however don't see any bees trying to pollinate it. I've tried to self pollinate the male/female type flowers with little luck. The pollination goes fine, however, the fruit starts growing then falls off for some odd reason.

I have some pictures on my website, however the image insert option suggests that I must re-direct to some http:// URL. How do others post picture clips to their threads ?

Very helpful, Thanks.

Sounds like the plant is very over rated, needing a pollinator to achieve 68% fruit setting. I wish I could hire a few of my honey bees to pollinate, but the wife won't allow them into the house....Besides, honey bees only like whites,yellows and purple shades of flowers. The reds and oranges are more Bumble bee favorites.

The yellowing leaves are due to being outside a few too many colder nights. This has happened before and it'll grow back with new vigor in time.

Again I have not grown in pots.... but we had a plant in the yard growing up...(my mom was not the gardener in the family my granny was)...All my mom did was water ...I do rememeber the plant never getting very big but each year about this time we would get 8 to 10 fruit on it...was the first sign fall and the holiday season was to begin...

Sounds like neglecting the plants would produce better results. I'll just water them once a week and mist them daily.
