Potted Key Lime Trees will not bloom
Hello Garden Web friends,
I received a small key lime tree in a rectangular box as a gift about 5 years ago. When it was removed from the box for transplanting, it turned out to be three trees which were separated and planted into separate pots. Two of the trees survived, and now I have two beautiful key lime trees in separate 10" pots.
The trees are about 14" high and bushy with the trunks approximately 1" across.
Despite the trees being healthy, they have never bloomed for me. except once when one of the trees was placed in a dark room temporarily and brought out.
At least twice during the winter season, I have to trim off excess growth because of limited space in my window.
I live in zone 6 - outside Buffalo NY. They stay outside during the summer and are brought inside during the cold weather. While inside, they are in an east facing window.
Can anyone can help me with my blooming issues?
