Hey folks, looking to plant some pomegranates, and I’ve got a nice location on the southwest side of the house, but the sport that catches the best sun is only about a foot away from the home, and the home is built on a crawl space, so I’m worried about roots. I’ve recently removed 2 fig plants (about 6 feet tall) the previous owner planted in the spot, due to the well-known invasive ness of fig roots. is the Pom. something that can be planted near to the house without worrying about foundation/ crawl space damage? Would love your thoughts / experience!
Pomegranates are pretty thin rooted and stay small. I would more worried about mold and mildew when planted so close to a wall.
Beside these small trees excuse some shade.
I have planted in spring about 25 from seeds, they are still in pots/bags under our Banana tree and doing well.
Some got too much sun and burned (Thailand)
They are happy with their role as half shade plants..
In modern times is going the right way forward the only way to coming back to nature.
