Kumquat fertilizer recommendation
This winter I got a Sweet Kumquat tree from Costco grown by Saxon Becnel and Sons nursery. The plant tag doesn't give the variety name, since it is a sweet Kumquat, I assume it to be a 'Meiw' variety after checking the Saxon website.
Kumquat may not survive the Dallas winter, so I grow it in a container. It has already flowered and I see tiny baby fruits. I started to notice few leaves turning to light yellow, not sure whether it is because of watering issue, usual suspect being the pH level or lack of fertilizer. I was told not to add fertilizer for one year as the potting mix is already mixed with slow release fertilizer. If it is a fertilizer issue, I would like to get fertilizer recommendation for this Kumquat. In Home Depot, I saw Espoma Citurs-tone, please let me know whether it can be used for Kumquat. Thanks
Attached is the picture showing couple of yellow leaves.
