How to make your lime tree bear fruit?

Q: I have just completed my garden and planted a couple of Lime Trees.

I am wondering how to make my lime trees bear fruit. I noticed that

even in the shade I have the occasional fruit. Any help or pointers

on how to get it to fruit?


Q: I have been advised by the nursery that the lime tree should have a

3-4 year growing time. I have recently planted 2 1m × 2m x 15cm in the

late February/early March. I noticed that in the 3-4 years of growing

time the tree has no leaves and it just looks like a stump. What should

I do to get this lime tree to produce fruit or should I plant it in a

different location. I have purchased a 10 year guarantee from the



Q: I have a 6 year old, 2.1m x 1.8m x 1.8m (diameter x height x

height) lime tree in my garden. I have fertilised every year in the

spring and the trees look very healthy, healthy and strong. It is now

June and not a single leaf has fallen. However, I noticed that all the

leaves on the tree are covered in lime sap. What should I do?

regularly by a lime tree specialist. Do I need to water regularly in

the autumn?

rapidly and the roots are coming up the sides of the container. I

Q: Lime trees I have seen in the UK have the trunk wrapped with

leaves. The UK's weather in spring is very cold. I wonder if there

Q: Will lime trees survive at my lake if I only sprinkle fertilizer



Q: I just bought a 5 year old lime tree (Citrus medica). It has had a

bad case of aphids for about a year. This year I sprayed some insect

pesticide on it. Now there are no aphids and the tree seems fine

other than yellow leaves on the top of the tree. If it is ok to cut

the tree now, will I be ok to plant it in the ground in the spring?

Q: My 3 year old lime tree (Citrus medica) has had a few aphids this

the new leaves are yellow. Do I need to worry?


Q: When pruning fruit bearing citrus, should one remove all the leaves

on the tree or just the ones below the fruit?


Q: Why does my 3 year old lime tree have so many green leaves on it?


Q: I had a tree service prune my fruit bearing Citrus medica and

they were not sure if I would like the new branches. I like the

changes. I want to know if I should cut them at the green tip or

just the older branches, as they look very green.


Q: I recently purchased a 5 year old citrus tree from a local nursery

and I noticed this year that the new leaves were large and full and

were not dying away like they did last year. I also noticed this year

that there is a light shade. I am using a fertilizer spray and am

adding fertilizer to the planting area and when I prune the tree, I

am removing the lower branches, not the upper branches. Is this okay?

What is the best time to prune my tree? I am in Zone 8.
