Q.

When can I expect my Lime Tree to bloom

Zone UK | bogarty added on May 4, 2012 | Answered

I grew a lime tree from a pip. It has flourished well and is 6 years old and has been kept in a container in the Conservatory during the winter and in the garden in the summer. My question is: when can I expect it to bloom and subsequently bear fruit?

There are actually a number of factors that may inhibit blooming. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/reasons-and-fixes-for-lime-tree-not-producing-blossoms-or-fruit.htm

You may want to add some more phosphorus to the soil, such as bone meal, which will help promote blooming. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
