Gift a Lime tree to someone special and we will plant it in the UK. The Lime tree is a true estate and large country house tree. It is fantastic for nature as it is a favourite food of aphids which, in turn, attract predators. The predators of aphids such as ladybirds, hover flies can then be a popular food source of birds.
The name ‘Common Lime’ is extremely misleading as it is not so common.
Fully grown trees have leaves that are a rich green in colour and are on average 8cm in length. As a deciduous tree the leaves fall in Autumn when they have faded to a bland yellow.
Lime trees have both male and female reproductive parts that can be within a single flower. The term for such plants is hermaphrodite. The flowers are an extremely attractive food source for bees as they provide a large amount of pollen and nectar.
The Common lime is native to the UK and can be found in most established gardens and national parks.
