The Q&A Archives: Care Of Lime Tree

Question: Please give me the proper fertilizer requirement for the calamondin orange tree and a small lime tree.

Answer: Citrus are heavy "feeders." Apply fertilizer three times per year, using 1/3 of their total annual nitrogen requirements. Apply in Jan/Feb, April/May, and Aug/Sept. The amount to apply depends on their age and size. Follow package instructions and water thoroughly before and after fertilizing. Good luck with your citrus!
