meyer lemon tree buds fall off too soon

Why do the buds on my dwarf meyer lemon tree drop off before blooming
Submitted by ajbj35

If the buds on your Meyer lemon fall off before blooming, it's likely that an environmental factor is involved. It could be lack of water or excessively low humidity causing the buds to drop before they open. Lemon trees prefer to have moist soil during bloom time. Drafty conditions could also cause buds to fall prematurely.
