TOMATOES:  Tomato plants lacking the proper levels of magnesium may also lack sweetness. Every two weeks mix 1 tablespoon in a gallon of water and water the plants with the solution. Mixing with warm water can help dissolve the Epsom salt easier.

FRUIT TREES:  Producing fruit is a long process for a tree. Magnesium levels often drop during this “long season” where applications of Epson salt can be of great benefit. Stronger plant growth, improved photosynthesis, fruit can taste better, look more attractive, be more nutritious and more weather and disease resistant. Apply 2 tablespoons of epsom salt per 9 square feet over the root zone 3 times per year. Start now and do one more application in mid-late August. 

Next year, make your first application before blossoms in the spring; then again at the first sign of fruit, then four weeks after fruiting begins. 

PEPPERS:  Growing peppers are much like tomatoes… they are traditionally magnesium deficient. Applying Epson Salt to them is very beneficial, to their growth, aids in germination, produce greater yields, improved beauty and strength of the peppers. Every two weeks mix 1 tablespoon in a gallon of water and water the plants with the solution. Mixing with warm water can help dissolve the Epsom salt easier.

ROSES:  Rose enthusiasts cheer the results Epsom salts deliver to their roses. More vibrant blooms, richer colour, darker green foliage and stronger plants. Regular applications increase magnesium levels in leaves which is vital for chlorophyll production process and seed germination. Once per month during the growing season, sprinkle about a 1 tablespoon per foot of plant height Epsom salt directly around to the base of the plant and water it in.

GRASS:  THE MAGIC OF INEXPENSIVE DRUGSTORE EPSOM SALTS: Epsom salt can help in the germination process and aid in health growth of grass seed in its early stages. The minerals within the Epsom salt can help grass with a healthier and greener look, and assist grass roots to grow stronger to withstand effects from the environment. For every 1250 square feet of grass apply 3 pounds with a spreader, or dilute in water and apply with a sprayer. This is NOT a complete fertilizer for grass.
