Lemon Tree

I have a lemon tree about 6 yrs old. It never has produced lemons. Do I need another lemon tree for my plant to produce lemons? If so, can I grow a plant from a clipping from my tree or do I need another tree?

You do not need another lemon tree to produce fruit. If it was grown from seed, it may not be old enough to bear fruit. They need 3-6 years to reach fruit bearing maturity. Have you fertilized? Nitrogen encourages leaves to grow, but not fruit. Too much can actually keep a plant from producing fruit. This article has information on how to fertilize your trees: [1] I would also try giving it some phosphorus rich fertilizer like bone meal. If it is lacking phosphorus, it will not be able to produce blossoms (which means no fruit.). If you have not read it yet, this article may also be helpful: [2]
