There are holes in my lime tree leaves. Occasionally I have found this type of worm 🐛 Please help. One of my lime trees is about 3 years old. How can I encourage it to bear fruit? Looking forward to your sound advice. Thanks and regards Bronwyn

It seems that this tree has been stunted quite severely. The growth is still that of what one would expect from a half year sapling.

With this being said, it could be from 6 to 10 years to see the first flowers and well after that to see the first fruit. So getting it to flower will take time.

The best way will be proper care from here. This will allow it to mature properly. This collection of articles will give you information on the care of citrus in container: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/potted-lime-trees.htm
