    I have a lemon tree in a pot on my patio and every year it gets blossoms but they never hang on. They end up falling off. What does my little tree need? Help!

    Hey Hillary 101, I don't know much about citrus, but I noticed that a poster in another thread about grapefruit trees said that fertilizer helped the tree produce good flowers. I have read that they are heavy feeders, so maybe your plant is missing something. Here is the link to the other thread:
