We live in Chesapeake, VA and bought a lemon tree 3 years ago. At that time it had lemons on it. The tree has thrived and in spite of regularly fertilizing, mulching, lots of sun and acid grounds, but it's not bearing any fruits. What can we do?? Thank you for your help.

I would 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.)
The requirements for lemons are very similar to that of limes. If you have not read it yet, this article may also be helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/reasons-and-fixes-for-lime-tree-not-producing-blossoms-or-fruit.htm
