best organic fertilizing formula for Meyer lemon trees?

herrschultzAugust 1, 2010

Can anyone recommend a good OMRI approved all purpose organic fertilizer product(s) for semi-dwarf Meyer lemon trees? I had been using Alaska fish emulsion but it has been OMRI de-listed recently so I am looking for a good substitute. I have found in the past that NPK formulas that stress higher K than P seem to work well. Also I'm interested in seaweed formulas that others have found effective.

Organic solutions only please as I am CCOF certified.

Thanks in advance.

I have used Dr Earth brand and CitrusTone brand fertilizers available at my local nurseries before. Don't know if they are the best or not. They are organic. And not cheap. But, I grow less than a dozen trees so I do not use too much of it.
I am not sure how many trees you are growing - because, if it is a lot, there is an organic growing forum on gardenweb, where some one would be able to tell you how to formulate organic citrus fertilizer cheaply by combining ingredients easily available.
