My pomegranite tree has been almost stripped of leaves by possum.

Should I cut it back or leave it? There is still some leaf growth left but not much. I have installed some possum barriers and hope they work. Just wish Council would do something about the possum plague in our suburb. It doesn't make living sustainably easy when they eat the passion fruit, the seedlings, and some of the herbs.

Answer: Hello Duncan,

Thank you for contacting Yates with your enquiry. I would recommend leaving the pruning until the coolest time of year in your area, as cutting back now may stimulate new growth too early in the year and also while the possums remain active in your garden.

Feed with some Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+ Concentrate from early Spring for best results.

Kind regards,

Matt
