Hi , i am not sure if i can plant Pomegranate and Guava trees close to my house, I only have 3 meter backyard
my boundary is a retaining wall 2meter high. and i have 3 meter wide space between my house and retaining wall. Please let me know if i can plant guava and pomegranate trees in that small space, does the roots effect my concrete house slab in future ? thanks
The minimum dimensions for a pomegranate or guava to grow is 30cm depth x 45cm width x 45cm length. The plants may require regular pruning to prevent them from growing outside their capacity. Pruning will also reduce the likelihood the concrete will be impacted.
However, the plants will grow bigger and therefore produce more fruit if planted in a spot with more width and length.
Prior to planting, to improve the soil by adding compost and Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver and Plant Fertiliser. Fertilise with Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food.
