I have a lemon garden (65 trees). The height of those trees is 5 ft. to 6 ft. , good health, age 1 yr-8 mons. But the flowers and fruit are not coming sufficiently.  Few trees of them are giving 25-50 quantity of lemons. Please solve the problem.

I would try adding some phosphorus rich fertilizer, like bone meal, to the soil. If it is lacking phosphorus, it will not be able to produce blossoms (which means no fruit.)

The requirements for lemons are very similar to that of limes. If you have not read it yet, this article may also be helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/reasons-and-fixes-for-lime-tree-not-producing-blossoms-or-fruit.htm
