How To Use Epsom Salts For Plants
Starting a Garden with Epsom Salts
Better Fruits, Veggies, and Herbs!
To make your veggie or herb garden thrive, all you need is Epsom salts, a tank sprayer (found at home and garden stores, and nurseries), and water. Rather than pouring Epsom salts directly on to the soil as mentioned above, you’ll create a solution using the salts and water. Fill your sprayer with 1 tablespoon of Epsom salts per 1 gallon of water. Spray this solution evenly throughout your garden, both when you first start your garden and as it grows. If you continue to use Epsom salts in this way, you may be surprised at how your garden flourishes.
Certain fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, tend to be deficient in magnesium. Since Epsom salt is rich in magnesium, using it will make up for this deficiency and result in a much healthier plant.
Epsom Salts for Beautiful Trees
Everything’s Coming Up Roses…
Epsom salts are especially beneficial for your rose garden. When mixed with the soil beneath your rose bushes, Epsom salts can help your roses thrive – leaves and stalks will be greener, roses more colorful and more abundant.
Epsom salts are perfect for your roses whether you are starting a new rose garden or caring for your existing bushes. If you are starting a new rose garden, begin by soaking your new unplanted rose bushes in an Epsom salt solution consisting of one cup Epsom salt to one gallon of water. Once your roses are planted, apply the same solution to your rose bushes using a tank sprayer or watering can. You can also apply the solution to individual plants using a solution of one tablespoon of Epsom salt for each foot of rose bush. Be sure to water the bushes at the very base of the stalks to encourage growth and strength of each cane.
