Mexican Lime Trees

Anonymous added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

We were given a Mexican lime tree from El Centro, California. We live in Las Cruces, NM--Zone 8. We planted the tree in May in the ground. It is on a drip system that waters every other day. It gets full sun all day. It is now June and it seems that the leaves are falling off. Is this normal and can it actually survive in this area? When we planted the tree, one of the nurseries recommended that we use tablet fertilizers in the soil. Is there something we might be doing wrong?
