    I used to put heavy amounts of urine, and chicken manure around my trees, I then noticed great green leaf growth but it became so green that they seemed to be more prone to fungus. Since then I go out to the leaf line of the tree and put down small amounts of nitrogen fertilizer, you get to watching the leaves and the new growth and it will give you feed back as if you are giving it too much or to little.

    I have learned to look at the new growth to get an idea of how well a tree is doing.

    Rain will dilute the fertilizer over time. However if it is in a container it has no where to go, re-poting may be a solution.
