I live in south georgia and I own a meyer dwarf lemon and the lady is correct on the too wet. Be sure you have good drainage and I planted mine in decomposed pinebark mulch and potting soil. I placed it in the sun and it got water each day or so but the bark held too much water so I repotted the plant got it right and it started to grow leaves now you can start to feed it and it keeps blooming and bearing year round if you don't freeze where you are. If too cold it will drop fruit, if you over feed it will drop fruit, too wet of soil, and otherwise it will bear year round. I place mine in a window in the winter sun shines in and it keeps on bearing. In winter less water is the key, only when dry or almost dry. The same in summer.
Sorry, my bad, I didn't see your whole post. Wait a while, fertilize (sic?) and it should bear fruit the next season. It's on the mend.
That usually means it was over watered. If it has rocks in the bottom for airiation and a hole, make certain it is on something where the excess water can drain and is in enough light to help the dirt to dry and it may get new leaves. Good luck. Don't feel bad, we've all done it.
