Hi, I just got a pomegranate tree from Home Depot, and when should I plant it? Tomorrow? And also, it has 2-3 trunks, and I want to make it in a tree form that is upright and bigger on the top. I want the trunks to be visible. What can I do?

You can plant your pomegranate any time. Now is fine. It's not unusual for pomegranate to develop multiple trunks. You can simply leave all the trunks alone and they'll grow upright at about the same rate. To turn your plant into a tree you simply need to rub out or cut away any stems that appear on the lower part of the trunk, leaving the top third of the plant with leaves and branches. Good luck with your garden.
