Anyone Can Grow Key Lime Trees, Even in the North
Because this is a dwarf citrus tree, you can grow it in a container. If you live in the north, you'll love its versatility as a summer patio plant while brightening your home for the winter. Fragrant white blooms in winter fill your house with a delicious, sweet scent. The tree is evergreen with lush green foliage, so it will be a handsome addition to any room with a sunny window. When grown in a container, the Key Lime Tree will not get taller than 8 feet.
Small Enough for Tiny Gardens!
Even apartment-dwellers will be able to fit the Key Lime Tree into limited outdoor space. The fruit follows the deliciously fragrant winter blooms in clusters of 6 Key Limes that will be deep green until they ripen. Grown in garden soil, the Key Lime Tree must be protected from frost; it is very tender to cold temperatures. Be sure to give your new lime tree good drainage and quality fertilizer for better fruit production.
Tons of Fruit at a Young Age
Watering young trees should be done 2-3 times a week. Once mature, your Key Lime Tree will only need warm-season watering about once a week. Always be sure to water deeply. The roots must be well saturated if you want a lovely tree that bears a boatload of succulent limes. You won't need to spray scary chemicals on your Key Lime Tree! Enjoy natural goodness all the way through.

Because this tree is grown in a burlap bag, its roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around the pot. This brings moisture and nutrients into the tree, for faster, healthier growth and ease. Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included), then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!
