Q.Pink Lemon Tree and Lime Tree

Anonymous added on January 4, 2011 | Answered

I have a pink lemon tree and a lime planted outside in Naples, FL. They have been in the ground for three years and are approximately 8-10 feet tall. Neither have bloomed or bore fruit.  They were fertilized in fall and spring. I sprayed with soapy dishwater only to get webby bugs in November. Any help?

Are they getting enough sunlight? That would be the next thing to look at. Another thing to look at would be the water. Are they getting enough water? Both of these issues can affect their ability to bloom. Just to be on the safe side, I would also recommend having the soil tested. Even though you fertilize, there may be something lacking or over abundant in the soil.
