The fantastic effects of Epsom Salts on plants have been around for many generations, and it's starting to form quite the reputation. It is fast becoming the go-to treat for our plant life, and this is why.
Epsom Salts provide a rapid cure for magnesium deficiency in plants. The early symptoms of the problem are yellowing between the veins on older leaves. Epsom Salt contains Hydrated Magnesium Sulphate (Magnesium and Sulphur), which is vital to healthy plant growth. Magnesium helps plants to better take in super nutrients, like nitrogen and phosphorus. It also boosts the creation of chlorophyll, which is vital for photosynthesis. Adding Epsom Salt will help improve flower blooming and enhance a plant's green colour. It can even help plants grow bushier.
To activate the beautiful effects of Epsom Salt either work it into the soil as a base dressing or dissolve the salts in water and apply directly to the leaves with a sprayer or watering can. When diluted with water, Epsom Salt is readily taken up by plants, especially when used as a spray. Most plants can be sprayed with a solution of two tablespoons of Epsom Salt per gallon of water once a month. For more frequent watering, every other week, cut this back to one tablespoon.
