    spog777 says: Some citrus trees take a few years to mature - the tree won't produce fruit if "it feels" it's not ready or the climate is negative for flower production.

    Have you had any signs of flowering, how old is your tree, what do you feed it and does it get much daily sunlight - bit like having a child isn't it :)

    DiDi says: My lemons had brown spots in them a friend told me to mix a bottle of Cloudy Ammonia with a bucket of water and pour that around the drip line. This season we have the biggest and juicest ever. So give that a try.

    Birdie says: It's important to know what the pH of your soil is before doing this, ammonia enriches the soil but also makes it more basic. Soils are most commonly acidic, and most plants prefer slightly acidic soils, pH around 6-6.5, lemons prefer slightly more acidic conditions. There are home pH test kits available in garden stores and in some super markets at low prices.

    Hillicent says: have you pruned your lemon tree? you can google for tips on doing that. and always check for citrus wasp which needs to be removed and thrown in the garbage (NOT the greenbin).
    the cloudy amonia idea sounds good - shall try that!

    weerobby says: try feeding it with citrus fertiliser with trace elements and also sulphate of potash, fish emulsion like charlie carp can also help and keep the water up

    wendel says: Don't forget to fertilize the tree, needs plenty when trying to produce fruit. Spray for bugs also.

    jet says: Hi Baggage, the lumps on the lemon tree are probably wasps - you have to cut the branches with the lumps off and your branches will reshoot -anywhere there's a lump just cut the branches off. HAPPY PRUNING
