Q.Why Does My Lemon Tree Lose Its Fruit?
I planted a seed about 2000, and now I have a potted tree about 5′ tall and has bloomed for about 5-6 years. Every year it has bloomed, and when the flower falls off, the small fruit falls off about two days later. All of them every year. I do fertilize and water to what I believe is correct. Help!

It sounds like it may be a pollination issue. If the flowers are not pollinated, the fruit will fall off. You can hand pollinate the flowers with a small paintbrush swirled around the flowers.
