Default Absolutely no fruit on cirtus trees this year

Help!!!!!! I desperately need an excuse. All 8 of the fruit trees that I planted in fall of 2005 had some fruit last year. They were the medium sized trees from Lowe's (about $50 each to give an idea that they are bearing size). One other grapefruit tree I bought last fall bloomed this spring and set fruit but the other trees had no blooms at all. I'm wondering if I overfertilized (I do about 1/2 the amount of cirtus fertilizer every other month), heaven knows it couldn't be overwatering, I have sand 3 feet from the base to help prevent wet soil. No obvious bugs or diseases. Several folks told me that the late frost and tornado winds ruined this year fruit set. I'd take that excuse except the one tree that didn't have a year of my care DID bloom and set fruit. My only thought is overfertilizing or not stopping at the right time. Any other ideas??????

You may be fertilizing a little much. I have several large trees and after the hurricanes I got nothing except soem grapefruit. Last year they came back with a vengance and I had more fruit than I could give away. Contact the county extension service, they are very helpful and have some real good material.. Good luck

We have one Myers Lemon currently very heavily in bud, one calamondon extremely heavily in bud, and a tangelo with lots of fruit just starting out, unlike last year when it bore extremely little. Our lime is tiny but growing amazingly after losing all leaves to the frost, but no signs of bud yet. The kumquat, not really a citrus I guess, was amazingly heavily productive last year but I don't know about this coming season.

Hi, I was thinking of trying to grow a lemon tree. Do you have it in the ground or just in a pot? thanks 8)

You can go either way. Contact the county extension service, they've got a lot of info on types and care of citrus trees
