Re: Figs and Pomegranates...
Good luck w/ your fig. I don't really mind that I get some top kill on mine, they are planted in relatively tight spaces, so it keeps them from getting too big.
I enjoy the pomegranate flowers too, my Salavatski has flowered the past two years, but has not set any fruit yet. So far I do not see any flower buds... only time will tell what it does this season.
