It is difficult to guess how much water the soil has and it's tendency to hold moisture. Either soggy wet or dry is not good. Try to keep it moist as best you can. I think a light fertilization periodically from spring to late summer is fine and can help maintain good vigor. Fertilizing this late is a bit iffy with winter coming. I would go very lightly or not at all from now until spring.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
