  • Plant sweet limes in the well-draining soil since like all citrus, sweet limes hate wet feet.
  • A big thing to watch for with sweet lime tree care is temperature.
  • Sweet limes can be grown in the garden or do nicely in containers as long as the ambient temps are 10 C or more.

  • Be sure to water the tree every 7-10 days if it is in the ground and up to every day if a container has grown depending upon rain and temperature factors.
