    Anyone find one currently in stock in Toronto? I've tried all over the place, including Sheridan and Humber, and no one seems to have one now.

      none in TO, however seeds are available on eBay.ca, including someone that has plants in BC. Try Floraexotica.ca (in Montreal)

        Just missed out on the plants on ebay! Last one was sold only a few hours ago :(

        Thanks for the tip though... didn't think to look on ebay, but will keep an eye out.

      I bought mine at Humber Nurseries 2 years ago ... didn't see any up there a few weeks ago when I went, but they obviously have a source they could order one from ...

          T & T Supermarket. I bought them there recently, and they have always had them when I've looked.

              Oops. Sorry!!! The leaves. I didn't read your post thoroughly. I have no idea where to buy a tree. Good luck! Let us know if you succeed in growing one, as lime leaves are one of my favourite things.
