Unknown seedlings confirmed as pomegranate by Jorun
« on: December 18, 2016, 12:46:35 PM »
When digging over a vegie bed we found a number of seedlings which we couldn't identify - here are some we potted up.
Nearby is a flowering Oleander and I wondered if they could be from them? The other possibility is Pomegranate as the seeds were thrown into the compost.
Any suggestions?
cheers

The biggest seedling with proper leaves looks very much like the seedlings sprouting under our pomegranate trees in Greece, I'm weeding them all the time to limit the number.

Thanks, Jorun,
it means these might be worth keeping - and they should cope with our conditions :D

It's the toughest plant in my garden in Greece, I believe, the only one I had any success with in the beginning.
