Lime trees are large, stately trees, often planted as specimens in parks or fields, but also along avenues and driveways. They make good trees for the city, and cope well with urban stresses. They are also a classic tree for formal avenues in country gardens and estates, and in cities are frequently pruned or 'pleached' into formal shapes. For a more natural effect, leave unclipped to grow into their own airy and very distinctive habit. The flowers in early summer are traditionally used in herbal teas and infusions. Sturdy 60-90cms plants in 2-3 litre container.
