potted key lime
Unfortunately, I read the causes of leaves dropping after having over-watered my potted key lime. While a lot of leaves dropped, there are still some on the tree but it is really patchy and looks like a Charlie Brown key lime. Should I cut it back or just wait and see if new leaves come in? Thanks in advance for your help!
