Pomagranate not blooming
I have a three year old pomegranate in a very large pot. The tree seems happy, has put out good new branches and foliage each year after a 1/3 pruning while dormant. However, it has never bloomed. It leafs out wonderfully and is attractive in that way, but of course, I want more. It gets morning and early afternoon sun, but I have it in shade during the hottest afternoon. Because it's in a pot I didn't want to cook the roots. I had never fertilized it before this spring, but did use a "tea" that was somewhat heavy on the phosphorus side about three weeks ago. I'm getting lots of new leaves, but still can't spot a bloom. Any hints?
