Q.My Lime Tree Lost Leaves When I Brought It In For Winter

Zone Wagoner ok 74467 | turnham.susan added on December 4, 2023 | Answered

New ones grow then turn yellow and drop off. Is it possible I over fertilized it when I brought it in. What can I do to save my tree I have had it 8 years.

If this hasn't been repotted, or roots trimmed, then it may be time to do that. Rootbound plants will show this kind of symptoms, but can be mitigated by potting into a bigger pot, or trimming the roots.

As you are aware, I'm sure, you will see some, if not drastic, leaf loss when it overwinters indoors. This can be normal, and more light can help with this.
