How much fertilizer do I give my orange tree?

11 years ago


I am growing a grafted velencia orange tree in a 3 gallon pot. I bought some "Grow More Soluble Citrus Food" and the instructions say to mix 1 tablespoon of fertilizer to one gallon of water. I plan to do this with a old 1 gallon milk jug I have.

Now my question,

How much of the gallon I'm mixing should I actually give to my tree? Also, once it's warm enough to move the tree outside I plan to repot it into a 5 gallon pot, should I fertilize before or after repotting?

Thanks for the advice!
