Q.Persian lime will not bloom

Anonymous added on August 18, 2015 | Answered

3 years ago I planted my Persian lime in a sunny, well drained spot in my backyard. It had flowers and a few limes already on it. It was full and about 3 feet tall. I have treated it for leaf miners regularly, following directions (I also have pink grapefruit and orange trees out front that I treat as well and fertilize with nitrogen rich fertilizer at the suggested times for our zone 9 in n. Florida). My little lime has not bloomed since. What can I do?

You may want to add some more phosphorus to the soil, such as bone meal, which will help promote blooming. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
