The best time to prune a satsuma is in late winter (early to mid February), prior to the onset of new spring growth. Wait to fertilize a new tree until it has had a couple of months to begin growth and then only fertilize lightly, or with a slow release product. Mature trees can be fertilized with a cup of turf fertilizer per inch of trunk diameter in mid February and once every six weeks for three more applications (late March, mid May, and late June).

Thanks for the question. Please feel free to stop in again with another question any time we can help!
