This 8-2-8 fertilizer is designed to be used to maintain / support your citrus trees once they are of a size you want. This is a lower nitrogen fertilizer and is not optimal for younger trees. Our 13-6-6 Citrus Fertilizer is a better option for younger trees you are trying to put size on.
This is Semi slow Release so it doesn't burn the roots and is safe for container trees. When you add it to the pot it begins feeding almost immediately and in 4 weeks when we add more it starts all over again.
This is by far the best citrus fertilizer we have found to grow happy healthy citrus trees the fastest so we have decided to offer it to our customers to help them grow the best trees they can.
Sprinkle the appropriate amount of fertilizer around the pot, taking care not to just dump it around the trunk of the tree. Then water it in to activate the fertilizer. Reapply fertilizer every 4-5 weeks.

These are a few questions we are often asked and their answers:
Why dont you ship to FL or CA?
We aren't able to due to USDA restrictions, we wish we could but we can't.
When will my tree fruit?
We graft with certified mature buds so our trees are capable of flowering and producing fruit in the first season, but will definitely flower and produce fruit in the second season. We recommend removing fruit for the first couple years to allow the tree to focus on branching and growing roots.
What does this variety taste like?
In most cases the original Budwood program we purchased Certified buds from does not offer much in the way of descriptions or taste information. We then grow those buds out and continuously harvest new buds and then sell young trees so we simply don't always end up with fruit to try so unless its listed, we don't know what they taste like.
Do you have anymore of these available?
We try hard to add inventory when it grows large enough, if a product shows as 0 available please click the notify button to be emailed as soon as we add inventory to the site.
What rootstock is this grafted onto?
We use a handful of rootstock varieties for different reasons when we are grafted. If the variety says "Dwarf" then that variety is grafted to Flying Dragon. If it is not listed as Dwarf then we either used a standard rootstock or semi dwarfing rootstock. When fully mature the difference between Dwarf and Standard is only about 80% difference, it just takes dwarf longer to grow that large. You can maintain tree size through pot size and effective pruning.
