Owari Satsuma Mandarin trees can be fed with a balanced slow release fertilizer in early spring and late summer. Containerized citrus trees lose nutrients faster than citrus trees planted in the ground. So they should be fed more often. Fertilize your potted mandarin tree 3 to 4 times per year with our specially formulated fertilizer. Feed citrus trees that are planted in containers at the end of winter, early summer, and again in fall.
