Are you fertilizing the trees and providing adequate water? When growing from seed, patience is a virtue. It can take years to get blooms, and longer, if ever, to get fruit.


If you really want to grow lemons, it's best to purchase a grafted tree from the nursery. They can be fruiting in two years or less.
