Too Many Lemon Tree Blossoms
I recently acquired a Meyers lemon tree. I planted it, pruned it, fertilized it with a citrus fertilizer and watered it well for weeks. After a month and a half it is doing beautifully! It had no blossoms when we planted it, but it is loaded now. I'm wondering if I should thin the blossoms or will the tree do that naturally? It seems to have too many blossoms to produce fruit from each one?

I don't think you need to worry with thinning out the blossoms just yet. Wait to see just how many fruits the tree will set first. Then you can simply thin out the new fruit as needed if there seems to be an over abundance, leaving just enough for your personal use.
