Lime Tree

Anonymous added on August 6, 2015 | Answered

I have 2 lime trees kept in the greenhouse. Both have plenty of flowers. One of the trees has got a few limes but the other one keeps dropping all the flowers and has red/green bugs on. I am worried about losing it. My greenhouse is heated during winter. Is it advisable to wash the tree with plain water? If not, what kind of spray can I use? I am looking forward to your advice.
