Very sad lemon tree

Posted by Sheila Smith , Mar 14,2007,14:27       Forum

I have had a lemon tree for a year (a Mothers Day present) for the first few months it had an abundance of flowers and baby fruit. Eventually I had three reasonable sized fruit left but the flowers disappeared and now only a few leaves remain with the three green , small fruit. I use the different feeds for summer and winter and have been careful not to overwater. Initially the tree was in a sunny window but I have now moved it away in the hope that maybe it wasn't happy there. I would appreciate any help please. Unfortunately my daughter who sent it to me has just visited and seen what a sad sight it is!
