Limes typically showcase their fruitfulness in the warmer months, although this may vary by lime variety. To optimize summer production, it's essential to provide your lime tree with proper care. Prune it thoughtfully, ensure it receives abundant sunlight, apply a potassium-rich fertilizer, maintain adequate hydration without waterlogging, and vigilantly monitor for potential pests. Encourage natural pollination by creating an environment friendly to pollinators, particularly bees.

We do not sell plants, unfortunately. We only offer gardening advice. I would check your local nurseries or online for a reputable place to purchase your plants.
