I have a mature, healthy lemon tree growing in my well irrigated front garden in Spain. It is about five feet tall, has a thick trunk and has been regularly pruned. I bought it from a local Spanish garden centre, in a pot, and it was full of lemons, and they planted it for me. I was told that it would fruit twice a year. It has been planted now for almost two years, and has not flowered or fruited at all. The garden centre has now gone into liquidation and is no longer there. What can I do to make it flower and fruit? Somebody told me recently that it is because there are no other lemon trees nearby.
