Q.

What’s wrong with my lemon tree?

My lemon tree had lots of flowers in early spring, but they dropped off shortly after. I started using 0-10-10 last month, still no fruit.

These articles have information on how to fertilize your trees: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm

I would also 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
