Q.Lemon Tree Grown From Seed From Amalfi Lemon Has Never Bloomed

Zone 29401 | Anonymous added on February 11, 2021 | Answered

A good friend brought back lemon seeds from Amalfi coast (not sure if that was breaking the law) but he planted them and got some nice plants. Gave me one which was growing great, and then two years ago was damaged by a hard freeze here in Charleston, S.C. Subsequent growth is healthy and back up to about 6-7 feet in large container but has never produced blossoms. Have a three Meyer lemon trees in container (one I grew from a seed!) and a small orange tree in a pot that I bought just for the pot but got a puny tree which I’ve nursed back to life. Got two oranges last year. But why hasn’t the Amalfi lemon tree had blossoms? Nothing! Is there anything I can do?
