The Highlights

    • A beautiful rounded tree with dark-green heart shaped foliage which turns to buttery yellow in the autumn
    • Small, highly fragrant ivory coloured flowers are borne in July and are a favourite of bees
    • This large native tree will grow to 15x8m
    • This tree is not directly related to the citrus fruit-bearing lime, despite its name
    • A spectacular tree that will add grandeur to your horizon
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Prune Annually

June is an ideal time to remove the long side branches if you want to create a tall trunk, although you should leave the branch collars intact. Pruning young lime trees into a particular shape can be tricky. A useful tip is to do this while the tree still has its leaves, as this makes it easier to determine the ultimate shapeMORE
