Lovely picture, Stephen. I watered the lime tree outside my house whenever it was dry earlier this year, and interestingly its leaves are still very green. Whereas the leaves on the lime tree across the road (which didn't get the watering) are very yellow. I will conduct an experiment next spring and summer and will water both trees diligently, and see what happens in the autumn.
That will be very interesting. I would have thought the trees are old enough not to benefit from extra watering, but could be very wrong. (Obviously trees planted in the last one or two years can always do with watering TLC.)
I started watering the lime tree when I noticed its leaves beginning to curl one particularly dry spring. The water seemed to have a beneficial effect.
