Is my lime tree ok?
I have a few questions regarding my lime tree.
- I live in Houston, TX and it's been fairly chilly lately (35-50 degrees F at night). My backyard is also really windy. Is this a problem?
- Do I need to repot my tree?
- Are there suckers at the base?
- Do I need to prune off the top of parts of the tree?
- Some older leaves have turned quite yellow (shown in picture 7). IS there something wrong with the tree? Is this normal?
- Is it bad the my tree leans to the side (pic 2)? Should I support it with a post or something?
Here's some background info:
I've had my lime tree since September of last year and since then, my tree has not yielded any fruit. Last fall, I did have several blossoms (about 15-20), though all fell off before maturing to a full fruit. I have TONS of blossoms now. Are there too many blossoms?
I also had a lot of leaf loss, though I know this happens when the tree is stressed. I did not repot the tree because of this. New sprigs have come back where the leaves fell off (shown in pic 9).
I've been fertilizing in the pot with Vigoro Citrus & Avocado 12-5-8 with about 1/6 cup every 2-3 months. Is this enough, too much, too little?
Please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong or right. :) Thank you in advance for your help!
