Lemon Tree Not Blooming or Producing Lemons

I have a Meyer lemon tree that will not grow a flower or a fruit. It just gets bigger and bigger with long thorns on it. What can I do with this tree? Thank you.

I had that problem also, then I went back to the nursery where I bought my lemon tree and their gardner told me that you must have a second fruit tree. Either in your property or close by so that they can pollinate. Otherwise, the fruit tree won't be able to produce fruit.
My solution was to buy a lemon tree and since then I've had lemons. Hope that helps. (01/14/2010)
