Q.

Hardy limes or citrus

Zone N2h3m4 | Harperbug added on June 6, 2016 | Answered

I'm interested to know if there are any hardy limes or other citrus which would be comfortable outdoors in southwestern Ontario. I saw some beautiful pleached limes from England and would love to replicate that if possible. Thanks so much.

    Citrus need warm weather to grow and produce fruit.
    Zone 8 or warmer are necessary to grow a citrus tree outdoors.
    You could try a dwarf indoor variety for fun!
