Lime tree not fruiting

Lime, sour    None Given

I have a 5' lime tree and it was producing up until it got hacked by aphids and ants !! I sprayed been oil, got rid of them but since then it never produced again! It's input doors not in my green house so the weather is cooking hot, leaves are drying up ? Water it every 3 days ! Shall I take it in my greenhouse where the temperature in great and stable all year round ? Shall I water it more often?

When you water the tree is the soil still moist (try digging into the soil a couple of inches with your fingers to check moisture). You may be watering the plant too much. Did you fertilize the tree at any point?

Lindsay McMenemy commented,
If the soil is still moist after 3 days then you should not water again. Lime trees should be fertilized with a nitrogen fertilizer once per year (in winter) or the application can be split into 3 smaller applications. Here is another resource for you to look up the requirements for your particular tree (amount of N depends on the age of the tree) http://ucanr.edu/datastoreFiles/391-2...
