Our Mexican lime tree has been having issues this spring. Mainly because of our wind & weather for the first part of this spring. One day we went outside about a month ago and it looked like it had about 10 leaves on it. It was sad sad times.
This past week we have noticed it is finally taking a turn for the better. Spring has sprung and so we are happy to post some pictures of our lime tree making a long overdue comeback.
We are going to give it some nitrogen this weekend via the most organic way possible, we read that some citrus trees that are lacking nitrogen have a problem with bearing fruit and their leaves turn a yellowish green. This is our problem at the moment, so we are going to help it out!
See the pics below and enjoy. I can almost taste the lime in my beer already. 😉
If you are wondering how to care for a lime tree… look no further, here is a how to care for a lime tree post for ya.
I HAVE A (MEXICAN?) LIME TREE THAT HAS BEEN PLANTED IN MY YARD FOR AT LEAST 20 YEARS. I HARVESTED A HUGE CROP TWO YEARS AGO, BUT IT HASN’T PRODUCED A SINGLE LIME SINCE. I AM IN EAST TEXAS. IS THIS NORMAL OR IS THERE SOMETHING I NEED TO DO TO ENCOURAGE FRUIT PRODUCTION?
Why are my leaves turning yellow?
