In March of last year, a friend and I made a field trip to Brussel's . He bought a 1 1/4" diameter pomegranate. Very nice specimen, but a little taller and lankier than he liked. He pruned the top 6" off and gave it me to see if it would push roots. Boy, did it! It grew like crazy all of last year. This year in spring, I pruned it back pretty hard, leaving plenty ( I thought ) of foliage. Well, it's really been sulking ever since. It's sprouted a couple of shoots, but the branches I pruned just kind of sat there. The mother plant did the same........just sulked for months. Anyone had a similar experience with pomegranates?
