Hi
We have both a lime and lemon tree. It’s their second year with us and are growing well with lots of foilage. It did look like we were going to get some fruit with little bud flowers that came through but nothing eventuated. Can you recommend something so next year they start to produce fruit for us.
Many thanks

Hi Jo, the lime is notorious for producing lots of foliage at the loss of producing fruit that hangs on and comes to something, it is best to stay on top of this new growth and continually prune this to allow light and airflow to any fruit that has set, (don’t be scared, you can’t prune too much!). If you do this consistently the volume of fruit will get better and better. If you are fertilising, the plants make sure you use a fertiliser that has a high component of potash which encourages flower growth. Or add some sulphate of potash 2-3 times a year.
Same for the lemon, although they should flower/fruit more easily depending on the variety, once again control all that new growth by regularly trimming this out. Thanks, the Palmers team
