Tahitian Limes are fantastic for flavouring dishes, used fresh in salads and in drinks. Fertilise newly planted trees with a citrus fertiliser to help settle them, the best times to feed citrus is from September through to March. Citrus can take heavy pruning, but this is not usually done unless transplanting or there has been damage to the limbs. They are best pruned in November or December as this minimises fruit loss and damage to new growth. Almost all citrus can be grown in pots, however, there are varieties which are better suited. This dwarf Tahitian Lime is ideal to be grown in a container.
Position: Full sun
Potted into larger containers
Citrus trees can be planted all year round, however, making sure to find the perfect spot for them is vital to good produce. They prefer a sunny position with rich-humus soil that drains, make sure to prepare the soil prior to planting. Mixing in a bag of well-aged animal manure or compost can help to conditions and revitalise tired soil. Make sure to blend with pre-existing soil, mixing together thoroughly.
Once the soil has been prepare, dig a hole which is wider, but not deeper, than what the original size of the pot the plant has come in. Position the plant in the hole and backfill any gasp with the excess soil. Give the plant a deep soaking of water to help settle the roots.
If planting into a pot make sure that the container chosen is large enough for the plant being planted. Never pot a plant into a container which is too small. Use a premium quality potting mix as this has all the added fertilisers and wetting agents required for having a healthy plant.
