This is my 1st attempt at growing pomegranate and the plant is blooming, but the blossoms are dropping off without setting any fruit; is there something I should be doing that will prevent this, or is this common for the first year?

Thanks juju, guess they're like most fruit, you have to wait a few years before production ramps up.

Had my first few fruits from a Russian pomegranate planted 2 years ago in zone 7a! Most early blossoms were male and dropped, later in the spring it set a few fruit. i expect a lot more fruit next year as the plants grew like weeds this year. they were delicious.
