Has your tree been inside all winter? If so, there's a good chance it's gotten dried out. Lemons need quite a lot of water, and it's hard to keep up with those needs indoors. Try giving your container a good soak in the sink or bathtub.

If your lemon isn't inside, or if you've been watering it a lot, there are a few other possible problems. (One is, frustratingly enough, too much water!)
