Answer: Hi Shane,

Thank you for contacting us.

You can improve your lime trees’ health with Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food and Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Liquid Plant Food. If you believe that it has been over watered, you can reduce watering to every alternate day and Dynamic lifter also works as a soil conditioner and will eventually improve drainage. Thrive Citrus will help in providing trace elements boosting their immunity and health.

We also notice some leaves eaten away, and it looks like caterpillar damage. If you notice caterpillars on the lime trees we would recommend using Nature’s Way Dipel Caterpillar Killer to control them.

Hope this information is helpful, if you have further queries do let us know.

Kind regards,

Yates Horticulturalist
