Unfortunately, flowering will be determined by much more than the type of fertilizer, though that will play a big role.

Depending on how fresh these plantings are, you may not see flowers for a few years, or at least until their roots get established and spread enough for flowering.

The proper fertilizer will change throughout the year, based on which part of its cycle the tree is in. This article will give you a general idea of how to feed them:
