Here are questions related to Lemon Tree Not Blooming.
If a lemon tree is sprouting new leaves does that mean it won't bloom?
My lemon tree of 4 years is not blooming for the first time and there are no thorns on the limbs. Could the tree be dying?

Doesn't sound like it got pollenated. Most trees you need more than 1 tree for this to happen.
My lemoncito had a good bloom in 2009. In 2010 it only produced 12 this year I only got one fruit. The tree and leaves are healthy, but there are lots of small buds growing at the bottom from the seeds that I damp from my orange tree. It is well fertilized and watered all year round.
I have a lemon tree that is over 5 years old. To date it has never bloomed. I have dug a shallow ditch where the branches end and I have put organic compost into this. I also water daily only in this ditch after the monsoons until the next monsoon. What am I doing wrong?

Citrus trees do not like wet roots. Be careful about over watering! If you get heavy rain once a week, you do not need to water at all. I have a huge lemon tree with 100's of lemons and only water deeply once a week because it doesn't rain in California where I live.
I have a mini Meyers lemon tree. It will produce flowers, but then they fall off. I have had this tree for about 4 years, but have had no lemons. It is in a large planter. It is now putting out new leaves, but I want lemons. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

I received a tip last year to take a paintbrush and gently paint or dab each flower to transfer pollen. It seemed to have worked since lemons grew on my tree last year. Hope this helps.
