I planted a lemon seed from a lemon that I got from a store. Not sure if it would bear fruit, I planted it anyway. It is now an almost three foot tree. Two questions: How do I get it to branch out? It has one branch growing up. Last winter I cut it down an inch, but that didn't do anything... I have it in a pot. I give it lots of sun and rainwater plus house water. I have never given it fertilizer and the dirt probably came from my parent's farm. It has always had green, healthy leaves. Just last week, the bottom leaves were lightening to almost a yellow. I put some fertilizer sticks in....mostly nitrogen. I read that if they turn yellow it probably needs iron or something else. So, what nutrients/fertilizers should I be giving it? Is there one that does all the tricks or could it need a few like the sticks, better dirt, and a liquid fert?? Thanks!!
