Hi Joanna,

Your right, it should have started to shoot by now? Lime tree pruning is best done in Winter, which you have done, but it is possible something went wrong between then and now.

Has there been any changes to the trees environment over the past 6 months? compacted soil, mechanical damage etc?

Is there evidence of pests?

Maybe give the bark a nick with knife to make sure it's still green and observe a healthy amount of sap fill the nick. This will tell you it is healthy and you have nothing to worry about.

It may just take another couple of weeks.
