Q.Can I regrow my lime tree?

My lime tree died, and I recently cut it all the way down. It’s now growing a “sucker”. Should I let the sucker grow?

Most lime trees are grafted, which means a favorable variety is grafted onto a hardier rootstalk. So, if your sucker looks like it was below the graft, I would just start over with a new plant.

If your tree wasn't grafted, you could let it grow.
