For the longest time my Darling Daughter has been asking me to plant a Lime tree. She uses limes in cooking, a lot. One of her specialities is Thai cooking. On a holiday to the Far East, she and her other half did a course in Thai cooking and on their return all sorts of previously not heard of ingredients found their way into my pantry and fridge as well as “limes” regularly making an appearance on shopping lists. She also says she finds lemons to be a little too “tart” in some dishes and prefers to use lime. Limes are not always readily available in the shops here. Woolworths stocks them but more often than not, just when we need them, they are out of stock.

So I bought a lime tree and for balance, a lemon. I bought them from a fabulous tree nursery here in Cape Town, the same nursery I bought the Pittosporums from. Quality, prices and service from Indulini are excellent, I’d recommend them to anyone in Cape Town and surrounds looking for good sized trees for their gardens.

So without any further long stories, I’ll let the photographs do the talking … (you can click to enlarge)
