meyer lemon tree

Zone VICTORIA BC | Anonymous added on June 17, 2016 | Answered

I have had a Meyer Lemon tree since June 1. It was in full bloom when I got it, and it is steadily losing its blooms and the part that produces the lemon. It is situated in a very sunny spot. I looked up the care for the tree and started to follow to the letter the watering and now the misting. Finally, yesterday, gave it fish oil. I did not think it would need it so soon. what can I do to stop the plant from losing its potential lemons? Jocelyne

You can eliminate some of the blossoms or when the tiny lemons have formed, prune some of them away.
Make sure there is no number higher then 8 in your fertilizer that you are using.
Increasing light or adding some additional time with a grow light can help.
