I have six month old orange seedlings which seem to be doing well.I had them outdoors for the Summer and I brought them in about two weeks ago.They are in a reasonable light in an unheated small corridor where I would expect the temperature to be fairly constant and a bit above outdoor temperatures.Is this O.K so far?Also can you please recommend a feed regime for the Winter/Spring?

It is easy enough to sprout ornage seedlings but they need good sunny conditions to grow on. They will be killed by frost outdoors except in mild areas, which Kilkenny is not. 

They need only frost protection but really good do with good light in winter, as they are evergreens, losing their leaves only in unsuitable condition.

Also they are slow to flower and fruit in our cool dull summers.
