Q.patio lime tree in a pot

Zone Jacksonville Florida | Markthegardner added on April 6, 2014 | Answered

I bought a patio lime tree in a pot, and it states 50% light, but the Home Depot associate stated it needs to be in the sun all day. How much light does it need? Also, can you transplant the tree with blooms on it and will that disturb the blooms and oncoming fruit?

Definitely agree with HD person, your lime tree will need all the light it can get, at least 8 hours a day. If you're planning to plant it in the yard, don't worry about disturbing the flowers and possible fruit -- limes need a bit of maturity before they start to set fruit, 3-6 years at least.
