Lime Tree

pramilla added on March 8, 2011 | Answered

My dwarf lime tree was giving me fruit in the beginning of last year. Then it stopped producing any buds or fruit. Come fall it lost all leaves, and until now has not produced any leaves. The branches are still alive. What should I do to make my lime tree happy and producing leaves and fruits?

They need 3-6 years to reach fruit bearing maturity. I would also try giving it some phosphorus rich fertilizer like bone meal. If it is lacking phosphorus, it will not be able to produce blossoms (which means no fruit).
