We have a Key Lime in a pot (rich soil) and a Persian Lime tree in the ground (sandy soil). Both have time released fertilizer spikes for citrus and both are dropping leaves. Any ideas?

Believe it or not, evergreens such as your lime trees do eventually lose their oldest leaves and now's the normal time for leaf shedding. You should see new growth soon, which will be the replacement leaves for the leaves your lime trees have dropped.
