Bearss Lime in container (full sun) not flowering, or fruiting.

Hi, looked, but didn't see an answer to this question that might help me. I am at a friend's home, and helping her to get her garden going. She has a Bearss Lime growing in a container, in full sun. She's had it for at least 8 years, I'm not sure of time, but it has NEVER had blossoms, and born fruit. The tree has new growth on it, oddly, the tips of the branches are drying out. The part of the branch closer to trunk is green. Don't know what to do for this tree. Is there any hope for it? If there is a way to save it, and have it finally, bear fruit for her it would be fantastic if someone could impart that knowledge on to me. :) Thanks, in advance.

After 6 years in the same pot, it's most likely rootbound. So it's both thirsty and short of fertilizer
