Hi Margaret,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It sounds like the flowering has consumed too much nutrients for the tree and it can only compensate for the growth by loosing some matured leaves. I would suggest starting weekly feeding with 'Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+' as a complete plant food, specially developed for boosting healthy grown and yield of juicy fruit in citrus and other fruiting plants. 
Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
