Q.lemon tree that is losing its leaves

Zone Salem Oregon | krueg472 added on April 8, 2014 | Answered

The tree is in a south window. I have had it for 3 years and it has always thrived. All of a sudden it is dropping leaves. Also, it has never produced fruit, but blooms. Why is that and what can I do to have it produce fruit?

Lemons don't fruit for 5 or 6 years, and the flowers need to be pollinated to make fruit. If you want to try this, you can use a Qtip to make like a bee.
