I have a small lemon tree in a large pot which produced about 5 fruit last year. In winter (indoors) itlost most of it's leaves, do when I put it at the end of spring I pruned it right back. It did the trick I now have a heap f fresh stalks and leaves, flowers and some baby fruit.
But none of the fruit seem to grow and some just disappear. It's in a sheltered sunny spot and is evidently very healthy. Why don't the fruit grow?



Try increasing the water supply once the fruitlets form - it may be that its not getting enough water to make the fruits swell.

If it is wilting between soakings, that will stunt or kill the fruit.
