Help needed with a lime tree

Hi everyone.

New to citrus trees and have a couple of questions. My lime tree lives outside in the summer but has been in the conservatory since November. It seems very healthy with no leaf loss or pests.

It started blossoming in early December and produced several dozen limes without any problems. The trouble is they have almost all fallen off!

Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Thanks for your help :0)

Taylor, it's not unusual for young citrus to drop some or all of its fruit. Just make sure you're fertilizing regularly and the tree has plenty of light. It should hang onto more fruit as it gets a little older.
