Looking for some advice specifically on Limes please. In a 14 acre site we have some nice big Large Leaf Limes around what used to be a managed horse paddock.


The horses are long gone and we have left the paddock ground pretty much undisturbed for the last 7 years. Over the last couple of years much of what was paddock has sprouted Lime saplings, mainly in clusters but well away from the mature trees (30m up to 60m away).


Someone suggested these might be suckers, can lime produce them over those distances? It seems unlikely.


Also, can anybody offer advice on moving the sapplings to another part of the same site that has no Limes? Can this be successful, if so when and how?
