Lemon Fruits

United Kingdom Gb

Young fruits keep dropping before forming.
Have had advice re: watering but not stopped the problem.



Are they all dropping off? Or just a few. It could be the trees natural way of thinning or a bird might pull them off. I don't think it has much to do with watering, some lemon trees are very drought tolerant and thrive in the worst conditions. If they all are dropping off better ask the nursery. If your lemon tree is not older than 2 years it is a very good idea to pull off all the lemons, so the tree can grow first and gain strength before bearing fruit.
