Lemon tree

Hi everyone I’m a novice gardener. I have a lemon tree in pot, in it’s 3rd year. Very excited because It has flowered and has fruit starting to grow. I am very frightened of doing the wrong thing, do I pluck some of the smaller fruit buds off?, I am feeding with citrus food every 4weeks and water every 10/14 days. Does spraying with seaweed work? It’s just very expensive to buy. Thank you for your help  any advice would be very much appreciated, YouTube is so confusing

    If it is flowering and fruit is setting, you are doing the right thing. Carry on.
     I don't use seaweed on citrus plants.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Don't worry about removing anything, the tree will drop what it can't sustain. Give it a deep water when it goes dry and add a citrus fertiliser. Fingers little meyer lemon has set a few new fruits too.

    I love the Log cabin, I’m looking for a little summer house with a possible potting area inside as well. (Not fussy I know) but difficult to find I think I will have to go with someone that can make something from scratch
