Q.Curling Leaves on Lime Trees

Anonymous added on April 24, 2011 | Answered

We have two lime trees in large pots and we water and fertilize regularly, but the leaves (which start out lovely and green) then start curling. They have not flowered since having them either. Can you help?

These are signs that it is underwatered, but since you have watered them, that means something else is causing the plants to appear underwatered. I would check the roots for a pest infestation or root rot. Pests on the roots or root rot would severely limit the amount of water the tree could take up and would cause it to appear underwatered.
