Hi,
My lemon tree loses its leaves during the winter. They just drop off, there is no sign of insects on them. In its 2 years we have had no fruit. The leaves return but there are no buds for flowers. What could be causing this?

Hi Robyn,
It is a sign of stress, most likely too much moisture in the soil that causes the plant to drop its leaves. It can take a couple of years for a lemon to start producing so as long as the plant is getting bigger it will come right. If planted in the ground you might need to replant it but planting a lot higher so excess water runs away from the plant. If in a pot it does happen often as it is really easy for the plant to be watered too much (little plant few roots) – in this case really reduce the amount of watering especially at this time of the year (i.e. no watering for possible 8-10 weeks depending on position).
Thanks, the Palmers team
