Persian Lime Trees

What Kind of Fertilizer Do I Use


Anonymous added on August 8, 2012 | Answered

I have a 3 year old lime tree (Persian). What kind of fertilizer do I need? I only get a few flowers and maybe 1 or 2 fruit a year. The tree is about 8 feet tall. I'm in Texas and we have had an exceptionally hot and dry weather for two months, 100 degrees average and very limited rain. I water my tree every day.

Lime trees usually require a nitrogen-rich fertilizer, with more phosphorus early on (prior to blooming). This article has information on how to fertilize your tree: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm
