Separate plants can be in early spring in April bud initiation, dig robust root tiller seedling points.

Slath can be carried out in  spring, autumn, and does not have to cut injury, before bud initiation with root part tillering pressure into the soil, after the summer rooting cut from the mother plant, autumn is into seedlings.

Open cultivation should choose the place with sufficient light and good drainage. In the process of growth, it is necessary to remove the roots and tillering seedlings and cut off the dead branches, sick branches, dense branches and long branches for the sake of ventilation and light.

Potted Pomegranate flowers should be shallow, and we need to control watering. It should be dry, not wet. In the growing period, we need to pick the heart, control the growth of vegetative branches, and promote the formation of flower buds.

The selection of pots: Wooden barrels, wooden boxes, the diameter of the basin mouth 30-40 cm, 30-35 cm deep. Nutrient soil preparation: leaf leaf soil or humus soil 7, turf soil 2, sand soil 1. All kinds of soil will be broken and sifted, mixed evenly, stacked, spread branches or other flammable material on top, lit, not only increase the plant ash, but also play a role in high temperature treatment of the soil.

Transplant seedlings into the pot in the middle and late March. Before planting the pot bottom drainage hole with tiles pad, the pot bottom filled with part of the nutrient soil, the seedlings into the pot, covered with soil cultivation, with the hand to slightly lift the seedlings up a few times, pouring permeable, after the water seepage and then covered with soil. The fill should be 5cm below the edge of the basin. Then place the basin in a sunny place to increase humidity and promote root growth.

Pleasant fertilizer should be applied when planting, and organic fertilizer should be applied after falling leaves in autumn and winter. Quick effect fertilizer should be applied once before leaf growth, flower management and after falling flowers. Due to the limited soil in the pot, the amount of fertilizer applied each time should not be too much, so we should "eat less and eat more". The commonly used fertilizer is mainly organic fertilizer such as cake fertilizer, which is fermented and added with liquid fertilizer.

The characteristics of tight branches and dense leaves, dormant period can be a thinning pruning, can be cut into a single round head, can also be cut into a multi-stem cluster or flat top type.

In case of dry rot or coal stain, the infected branches can be cut off and burned.Peach borer was the main pest, which was sprayed 50% dichlorvos 500-1000 times during egg hatching. From early June to early July, the larvae were sprayed with 2000 times solution to kill thrin before caries, and other leaf-eating pests were also treated. After fruit setting, 5 grams of phoxim emulsion can be used for 500 grams of dry fine soil, adding appropriate amounts of water to prepare medicine mud, for prevention and control.

In winter, place potted Pomegranate flowers in a sunny room at a room temperature of no more than 5℃ to maintain normal dormancy.
