Lemon trees and other citrus fruits grow particularly well in tropical and subtropical climates. Sour citrus trees such as lemons don't require higher temperatures as do sweeter citrus fruits, making them a possibility even for those in cooler coastal areas. While no quick fix forces your lemon tree to grow abnormally fast, proper growing conditions do encourage the tree to grow properly. Poor drainage, lack of sunlight, improper irrigation and lack of care can slow the growth of your lemon tree, causing poor production of fruit. Plant a 1-year-old nursery tree with large, green leaves and no damage to the tree trunk in the spring. A nursery tree already has some growth established, but the 1-year-old trees tend to grow more vigorously and are less likely to be root bound. This allows the tree to become established faster so it can grow more quickly. A spring planting allows the tree to establish itself before cooler winter temperatures hit and potentially cause damage that can slow the tree's growth.
Place the lemon tree in a sunny location that drains well. To test the drainage of the area, dig a 1-foot-deep hole, fill it with water and let it drain. Fill the hole a second time. If the water is gone the following day, the site has enough drainage.
