Bloom boosters are designed for annuals - they give a plant a quick boost to promote blooming. They don't do anything for the overall health of a flowering tree.

My preferred fertilizer is 'Excalibur' from Florida Colors, but any good well balanced fertilizer (preferably timed-release) such as Osmocote will do.

Opinions on using Fish Emulsion (5-1-1) weekly? figured it's "safe" just stinky..

I've used fish emulsion on a lot of my plants. I think it does a lot of good if it's done weekly in a very low concentration. I water the plants well first, and then use the fertilizer. Some fertilizers will burn the plants if the soil isn't damp when it's used.
