Happy day! Loving Readers and Visitors,
We guess that you have read and heard enough of climate change issues, which warrants us to take drastic and effective steps collectively to tackle it.
In today's article, we are sharing some ideas about planting pomegranate trees at the every space that is available to you.
In my case, I planted two pomegranate trees; one just outside my main entrance and the other at my backyard. How wonderful, blessed with some fruits while greening the environment. Killing two birds with one stone. See my trees in the photos below.
You must be aware that high inflation is the world's phenomena today, by planting fruit trees at your surrounding areas you may curb inflation to certain extent. Apart from this, you may also plant some indoor plants that can serve as air ioniser, filter and purifier, which we have shared with you much earlier. By doing all these, you can imagine how much money we have put into your pockets indirectly through reducing your electricity and fruit consumption bills.
Please note that we share these selected plants with you, knowing that most of you are having daily busy schedules, because they are very easy to maintain. To make them more appealing, may I be allowed to show you some of the fruits I have harvested from my Pomegranates trees at my main entrance. (See the photos below). However my other similar tree, at the backyard does not bear as much fruits when compare to this one. I guess that it is much younger. Can anyone tell me other reasons which I may not know of?
However, these trees do not provide much shade as compared to other big trees. But do not forget that the big trees do impose some danger to you if you do not maintain them well especially they become BIG trees.
Coming back to my pomegranate tree which I planted at a small available space in front of both my neighbour's and my houses. Fortunately, you don’t need a large amount of space for a pomegranate tree. They usually tend to grow about 4 or 5 meters high and are ideal for a small backyard. This plant was introduced by my mum who practices ancient belief that this tree will bring fortunate to the owner. Initially we planted it at the pot prior to this.
We shared the cost of this small retaining wall we built many years ago when the owner, of my existing neighbour's house, Mr Poh, carried out some renovation at his house. They have upgraded theirs sweet home to a two and half storey house, at BU 6.
The photos above indicate to us how harmonious this tree is as it is accompanied by other plants that surround its trunk and really make this area more appealing and attractive, especially when colourful flowers blossom at certain times of the year.
One secret I need to share with you of maintaining this tree is to prune it more frequently, i.e. by removing unfruitful branches. The more you do, the more fruit you will get. Unfruitful branches actually siphon some nutritions from fruitful branches that need them to bear more fruit.
Thank to my other Malay neighbour who brought to our attention, its medicinal value when she approached my wife for some of its fruit. At that time, she was looking for white seeded ones, prescribed exactly like ours. We offered her some and least expected her to return us with other fruits the following day, couple of years ago. We do not know whether she has planted them or not. In this regard, we would like to make the similar offer to anyone who wishes to plant this tree. Please email me your particulars or skype me. Thank God for all these blessings and wisdom, which drive me to share with you more.
Please let us know should you know of any particular medical healing value of this fruit. As far as I understand, it contains high fibres - good for skin and eyesight. One thing you can be rest assured that this fruit tree is without any fertilizer from our part and we grow it using the dried fallen leave as its natural fertilizer.
Pomegranates have up to three times the antioxidants of red wine and green tea – and the juice has been shown to reduce artery-clogging plaque, which in turn prevents heart disease and stroke. Research shows that long-term consumption of pomegranate juice may also help slow aging and protect against cancer.
