Does anyone have any advice on an orange tree??? This was given to my husband and was about 12 inches high when we received it. it is now obout 18 inches high & about 14-18 inches wide. I just tried to find the paperwork on it and I cannot. I have it potted. I put it out in the summer, on my east facing covered porch and bring it in in mid-fall. It decided to flower this month and I am concerned I should be doing somethng more to care for it. Any suggestions??

Sounds like you are doing a good job with it. It has grown and flowered. That is all good.
After/if it fruits is the time to repot it if that is what you need to know. A little judicious pruning for shape can be done at around the same time.
Don't the blossoms smell good?

Thanks Jonnie
I was really asking if I needed to fertilize it--but the info you gave me is welcomed and definately needed.

I cannot bend right now, so I cannot smell the blooms--hopefully they will still be around later. grin
