Helping Kaffir Lime Trees

I have 2 kaffir lime bushes that are bearing more fruit than leaves. What should I add to promote more leaf production & reduce fruiting as kaffir limes leaves are more useful for Asian cooking?

We would recommend immediately removing a considerable number of fruit from your kaffir lime, because the plant's energy is currently being directed to fruit formation.

In spring, commence fertilising with Daltons Garden Time™ Fruit & Citrus Fertiliser which is a balanced NPK fertiliser specifically blended for citrus. If the tree continues to produce excessive amounts of fruit, perhaps switch to a fertiliser that is higher in nitrogen as this contributes to mainly vegetative growth. As spring arrives, we would recommend removing all remaining fruit to promote foliage (leaf) growth.
