Fruitscaping™ with Lime Trees

Elevate your garden, patio, or indoor space with the refreshing appeal of our Lime Trees. These bright, vibrant citrus trees are an excellent choice for gardeners of all levels, offering visual beauty, enticing fragrances, and a harvest that’s as delicious as it is nutritious.

Perfect for warmer climates when planted in the ground and equally suited to container gardening in cooler regions, lime trees are a versatile addition to any Fruitscaping™ project. Their glossy green foliage, fragrant white blossoms, and eye-catching fruit bring a burst of tropical charm to any setting.

The benefits of cultivating a lime tree go beyond its ornamental qualities. Fresh, homegrown limes can transform culinary creations, adding a tangy twist to beverages, main dishes, desserts, and even preserves. Packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, limes not only enhance your food but also contribute to a healthy diet.

Lime trees are a year-round delight, offering visual interest in every season. Their lush green leaves create a serene backdrop, with clusters of aromatic blossoms appearing in the spring. As the seasons change, these blossoms develop into small green fruits, gradually growing and intensifying in color until they reach their characteristic bright hue.

Growing and caring for a lime tree is a rewarding endeavor. These trees prefer a sunny location and well-draining soil. Regular watering and application of a citrus-focused fertilizer, like Espoma Organic Citrus-tone, will keep your tree in prime condition, encouraging a generous fruit yield.

Whether you’re nurturing a standard or a dwarf variety, our lime trees are a perfect fit for your Fruitscaping™ journey. Experience the joy of planting and caring for your tree, and enjoy the satisfaction of a bountiful, tangy harvest.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
