Hello, I recently bought a small satsuma and the grower recommended a 2-1-1 fertilizer for the tree. I have only been able to find 12-6-6. Is 2-1-1 just the ratio, or do I really need to find one at that concentration? Can I just use the 12-6-6 at 1/6 the package's recommended application rate? Thanks!

Find a fertilizer especially formulated for citrus trees - They have very specific requirements. If you live in an area were citrus are unusual, order from the internet.
