Lemon Tree Not Blooming or Producing Lemons

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.

My guess is it needs more light. I would get a full spectrum bulb to put over it. I would make sure it gets full light for 12-14 hours a day. Check its fertilizer and make sure it is not over or underfed.

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.

I have a tree that I was told was a meyer lemon it never puts on blooms I have had it for 3 Years. The leaves smell like lemon when you crumble them in your hand.
