If the leaves are curling on your tree it is possible you have some sort of parasite, a leafborer perhaps. I believe white oil helps with these, take a leaf down to a good local nursery and ask them for advice on how to combat it.

Possibly citrus leaf miner. A caterpillar that attacks the new growth sucking the sap and leaving twisted leaves and a silvery trail. Spray with White Oil but but not in the hottest part of the day.

Is it getting enough water in summer? I only got two lemons last year on a young tree. My daughter reckoned there were thrips on the tree so I sprayed it, and I do have thrips on one of my rose bushes. It's the water when on restrictions that's a problem.
