Today I've taken drastic action. My lemon tree has been nothing but a disappointment over the last few years. Each year, lots of flowers appear, and then one by one they drop off. After watching the God that is known as Monty, I now know that watering it along with other plants in the greenhouse wasn't what it needed. So, I've pruned it right down and starting again. Oh, and I bought a new plant while I wait for this one to behave 🍋
Yeh I watched with interest about the lemon tree..I have one similar size to yours I have one lime in it at the moment and a lot of flowers ( the lime has been on since last oct) so nursed it thru winter..but I also now know I have been watering it wrong! @mrsburns
Mine was bought me for mothers day 2 years ago. It stands in my garden room. The smell in a morning when I open the door makes me look after it I tittle the flowers with paint brush, don't know if it works but I get fruit . Plus I like lemon tea xx
You were right @Sandie-rimmer72 . If the lemon tree is indoors, it needs help to pollinate. Mine is in the greenhouse. I know the bees have been in there but haven't seen what they've been up to in there. So I've just been in the greenhouse with a new make-up brush, tickling the flowers. 😄. I hope I got to them in time. There isn't much left of the flower. Only the middle stem bit. So fingers crossed 🙏🏻
My lemon tree has made it through the winter in the greenhouse. I took Monty Dons advise last winter and left it there instead of moving it indoors. No sign of any buds yet but there's plenty of new growth.
