My lemon Plan I have had for two years now, when I bought it, it had several flowers and a couple of lemons already on it. It grew very well and I took the advice of the gardener where I bought it and at the end of the growing season I gave it a light prune. It continued to grow very well and in the new season had plenty of leaf growth but no flowers so of course no fruit. I was quite disappointed, but continued to care for it as was on the label that came with it. Last November time it started to drop its leaves and then I noticed that there was a sort of web inside the leaves that had dropped and they were all curling up. At the garden centre I was advised to prune it back hard, and told it should pick up again. It has started to sprout leaves again but some of them are double leaves. It is a small leaf at the bottom then a large leaf coming out from that. I did take a photo but unfortunately I have not been clever enough to put it on here. Can you give me any advice on this, and is it likely that it will grow back normal again? More to the point will it ever bear fruit again? Thank you, Jennie.
