Q.Lime Tree Not Thriving

Anonymous added on November 11, 2010 | Answered

I bought a lime tree for my brother. It was a beautiful little tree with fruit. He transplanted into the ground at the side of his house and now the lime tree is drying up and dying. What do you think is wrong?

If he is doing that already, the root ball may have some air trapped around it. Make sure that the hole was backfilled properly and tamp the soil around the root ball down firmly.
