Q.Lemon tree not flowering

Amgad added on June 10, 2018 | Answered

first i want to tell that i like your web site and i regularly read the articles posted.. thanks for it.. i find it interesting and quite informative..
Actually i live in Egypt where the weather should be comparative to Florida.

I purchased a lemon tree like six years back, it was just a small plant with very few leaves.
now it has grown up to almost two meters high, but it never blooms and, of course never bears fruits.
i wonder if lemon tree have to be grafted in order to bear fruits (i am sure that it was never grafted!) or is it a matter of time and i still have to wait more time to see it flowering!

And generally, is it possible to graft a tree at any age, or it should be done when it is still young?

thanks in advance for your advice,

There are a few causes for this. The most likely situation is that there is too much nitrogen in the fertilizer. You will want to feed these with a high potassium and phosphorus fertilizer, that has very little nitrogen. There are even fertilizers that are meant, specifically, for citrus. This is what I recommend, as it takes the guesswork out of feeding them.
