I replanted a Meyers lemon tree and want to know how to get it producing. It was in a shady area and I transferred it to a sunny area. It was not producing. Should I fertilize it and with what?

Now that it is in full sunshine you should see lots of blossoms this winter and it should set some fruit. You can feed with a citrus tree fertilizer in amounts as recommended on the label (which is determined by its size). You'll want to feed your tree 3-4 times a year, as listed on the fertilizer label. I think you will see a big improvement in flowering and fruit set as your tree matures. Enjoy!
