Hello – my kaffir lime tree has developed some brown spots and curling. I keep removing the affected leaves, but it keeps spreading.

Uh oh... This is a fungal infection. This tends to happen in compacted soil, or when there is too much water.

I would recommend treating with a fungicide. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm

Do I cut/remove the affected leaves off before applying the fungicide ?
