We planted a small pomegranate tree (about 1 foot tall) a couple of years ago. The tree has been growing nicely, now standing about 3-4 feet tall. Last year we had a bunch of flowers but no fruit. This spring I pruned it fairly aggressively and we now have a lot of new growth. The new branches seem to be bending under their own weight, some have now bent all the way down to the ground. I am wondering, is this normal or should I give the tree some support?
possibly even more pruning for the first three years?
Purdue have some information on propagation, pruning, when to pick ,etc. But it does sound a lot of pruning early on to create a strong frame, and then irrigation when fruit start to form:
