Why does my pomegranate hate me?

ASCLMarch 26, 2014

I have a dwarf pomegranate tree that I've been growing in a pot. Last year it finally fruited and we got four pomegranates. This year it has only got leaves on one side of the plant though most of the branches without leaves are still alive. The flowers are also being thrown off before they actually bloom. I've been fertilizing it following the instructions on the box. Does anybody know what the issue might be and what I should do about it?
Thanks heaps.

Scrape the soil away from the base and check the bark just below ground for any issues.

Bigger pots not only for it but the one next to it.
Any chance you can put it in ground?
