Meyer lemon buds going black and falling off. dhopman. 6 years ago.
Newbie here in Livermore, CA, looking for some advice from you pros. I picked up an improved Meyer lemon tree at Costco back in March.
It has looked pretty healthy and I get excited with all the flowering going on (there have been multiple waves) but they haven't been turning.
Right now it's just all greens but I'm seeing little buds down in there.

In fact, I would recommend that until the tree is 2 years old, that you remove any blossoms it produces so that it can focus on becoming well established rather than on growing fruit.
Apr 16, The tree is reacting in a natural manner – it is ridding itself of a burden. Improper irrigation is also responsible for blossom drop. Fruit trees in the blooming stage require very special attention in connection with soil moisture – they should never be allowed to stress for water – this will weaken the connecting layer.
