Lime Tree - Planting Instructions

Planting Time

  • Plant as soon as possible

Positioning Lime Trees

  • Lime trees require full sun, at least 6 hours of sun each day
  • They are best grown in greenhouses
  • Ensure temperatures of at least 10°C
  • You can also grow them in pots & move outside in Summer
  • Provide good drainage
  • Avoid shaded, exposed areas & frost pockets
  • South east facing slope is best

After Care

  • Water plants when they arrive
  • Water again after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young tree
  • After 2 years, check the tree stakes to ensure they are not too tight around the tree

Harvest

  • Limes are harvested in Summer
  • If the fruits are vibrant green they should be ready
  • Gently squeeze the fruits and if a little tender, then they are ready to harvest
