Where to buy a Kaffir Lime plant?

I have looked and looked....I want to grow my own because it's impossible to find it at the stores it seems. Any thoughts? (Any tips of growing it well would also be appreciated!)

  1. if anybody will have one or know how to grow it here it's North Haven Gardens

    1. I haven't had much luck with local nurseries acquiring plant life that is not generally accepted as "practical" for this growing area. The reputable nurseries (NH being one) are genuinely concerned about the money that will be wasted on a plant that will likely not survive ---- ie, die, and they flat won't special order it.

      Anyway, if North Haven, nor other local nursery can't help you, you may try this online source.

      1. I've never not found it at the Asia World grocery store on Legacy.

        1. I have always found them frozen at the big Asian supermarket on Josey just north of 161. I usually buy a bunch and keep them in my freezer.
