Limes are large handsome trees with bold foliage and are particularly well-suited to parkland planting. However, if you do not have room for an avenue of Limes, don't despair - some varieties of lime respond very well to pleaching (basically growing a hedge on stilts!) which is a super way of dividing a garden. We have a row of pleached limes around our car park here at the Plant Centre and it really is a fine sight in summer (even if we do say so ourserlves!) and we would be happy to advise on pruning. Limes love a good soil which is not too dry and grow particularly well on alkaline soil.
