I would follow all package instructions, as many companies use different concentrations, and therefore, different measurements. It may not be a complete fertilizer, though. Citrus fertilizers are amended specifically for them, and I would recommend these over an all purpose. Depending on the age of the tree ,it may need a different NPK ratio.
