You answered few of my questions, but I am still confused. I have a dwarf lime tree. I will start fertilizing the tree now. 1. How often I should fertilize? 2. My tree lost all its leaves the last fall. Will fertilizing help in growing leaves also? Thanks

During active growth (spring-summer) fertilize about once every 1-2 months. In the fall and winter, fertilize once every 3 months.
If it is still missing all the leaves and they have not grown back, check to make sure it is still alive. This article will help with that:
If the plant is still alive, hold off on fertilizing until the leaves start to return. Fertilizing while the plant is leafless could harm it.
