Commonly Asked Questions

How do I look after my Lime Espalier?

Espaliered fruit will continue to grow beyond the current lattice. You can snip off the existing lattice to attach a larger lattice or an additional one. Espaliered fruit grows well along guide wires also. Plants can also be pruned back to smaller sizes to suit compact gardens. If space is particularly limited, you may want to consider a dwarf variety.


How do I get my Lime Espalier to produce delicious fruit?

A well-hydrated plant will produce juicy fruit. The location of the Espalier is especially important, as citrus will prefer a full sun location. Look into disease prevention to ensure your plant is healthy, and use a fertiliser specially designed for citrus. Good draining is also a must, along with a layer of mulch, which will help keep the soil’s moisture.


When do Limes produce fruit?

It can take a couple of years for limes to produce fruit; be patient and look after your plant’s health, and you will be rewarded. Limes will produce fruit in the warmer months of the year. Tahitian lime is particularly popular for baking and general cooking, including rind and juice. Kaffir lime is more suited to Asian-style cooking.
