The Clever Gardening Hack You Should Use
For A Bountiful Lime Harvest
If your lime tree is struggling to produce fruit, TikTok garden enthusiast Judy Bao has a smart hack that can give a substantial increase in yield during your next harvest period.
According to Bao, you need to pluck off the tree leaves at the ends of a branch to usher in new flowers and, hence, new fruit in just two months.
Evidence supports that pruning a mature lime tree that has had time to grow enough foliage promotes growth and fruit production because it allows for better sunlight penetration.
Pruning stimulates photosynthesis and supplies a better quality of food for the branches. The more leaves the tree has, the better it thrives when sunlight reaches them.
