pomegranate alive?

We transplanted a neglected small eversweet pomegranate tree a couple of months ago to a new location with more sun. It has not yet showed signs of life -- no sign of buds or leaves yet. When do pomegranates start budding out in Santa Clara County?

Our pom just began sprouting leaves about 5 days ago.. I'm located in SoCal.. High Desert, Lancaster...

RE: pomegranate alive?

Mine are leafing out now, but I'm MUCH warmer and milder than where you are. It's pretty hard to kill a pomegranate in California :-) Be patient, start watering and as soon as you see some leafing out, apply a light application of citrus fertilizer. My neighbor cut his pom down to the ground in hopes to stimulate it back to life last year, plus put it on a drip. It is now 10' tall. I am not joking, we were both astounded.

You are all right!! I was excited to see slight signs of life this weekend. There are very tiny green buds starting to show. Thanks everyone!
