Q.How to get good fruit on my lemon tree

Zone Kolkata India | Sambit added on July 2, 2014 | Answered

I have planted two lemon trees some days back in my garden. When I purchased those trees, they were bearing 5 to 6 fruits. However, after I have planted it in my garden there is no flowering in those trees. Please help me out and tell me the means by which my lemon tree will bear fruit. I have applied a super phosphate fertilizer 15days after planting the trees. Waiting for your valuable reply.

You have two things going on here. One is that being transplanted is a big stress on a plant, and it's not going to be able to start performing for you right away. It has to adapt to its new home, grow lots of fine new roots with which to support new leaves and then, after all that, flowers and fruit. Secondly, most lemon trees (indeed most fruit trees) require a certain age before they start to bear very many fruits. Your job right now is to give your new trees the best care you can, and they will reward you in the future, when they are ready.
