Lemon Tree Dropped All of Its Flowers

I planted lemon trees from seeds about 10-11 years ago, and recently, I got my first white lemon flowers. I never noticed any flowers on them at all. I checked them constantly, and then within 2 to 3 days they all fell off. What should I do with my lemon tree?


I have heard that lemon trees need water only once a week, is it true? Does anyone out there have the answer? Thanks in advance for your input.

Lemon Tree Dropped All of Its Flowers

You should be OK. The flowers only last for a few days and then once they have pollinated, the flowers fall off, and a lemon should grow. I have heard that it takes approximately 10 years for a citrus plant to begin to produce fruit. You should fertilize it with a citrus fertilizer. As for the watering you should be fine with once a week. I live in a very dry desert climate and my lemon tree gets watered with irrigation once a month in the winter and twice a month in the summer. So I think once a week should be sufficient. (04/04/2010)
