Q.lemon flowers not fruiting

Zone Botswana | lucylocket added on March 15, 2012 | Answered

I have 2 lemons trees. I live in Africa so sun is not a problem. Each year I get lots of flowers but very few, if any, go on to become lemons. Any advice?

If you are seeing blossoms but you get no fruit, this could be a pollination problem. You can hand pollinate with a small paintbrush. Just go from flower to flower and swirl the brush inside the blossoms.
