MAngo flowering

IS this normal for this mango to be flowering at this time of the year? IS this a good time to feed it? If that is normal is there anything special to be done to it?

I have noticed that my neighbours mango tree is in full flower also so it could be the warm autumn that we had here. Their normal flowering time in our region is around August/September. Let it set fruit and then feed it with a balanced NPK fertilizer in September. Your tree is still young and by leaving the fruits on you will hold its growth back and bonsai it, if you want it to push new growth and be a larger tree before it fruits remove the flowers. If you are happy to keep it smaller and more compact you can leave them on as it looks strong enough to hold the weight of a few mangos.

MAny thanks for your reply and I really appreciate it. The funny thing is that the others around it have not set any flowers.
I will leave some of the flowers and have it small rather than a large tree.The tree is young about 2 years. I purchased at Daleys when it was on special...Was real bargain.
Again thks fro your feed back
