I planted a dwarf lemon tree about 2 years ago. I had a lot of flowers at first but very few lemons came out.Now no lemons still. What can I do to get fruit?

If your tree is flowering but not bearing fruit, perhaps the flowers are not being pollinated by insects. If there is no insect activity to transfer pollen, the baby fruit will fall off the tree instead of developing into lemons. Try visiting each opened flower with a small paintbrush to transfer pollen. Best wishes with your lemon tree!
