Epsom Salt Benefits Garden

October 1, 2012


Grow larger, leafier, and greener plants by putting Epsom salts into each hole with your plant. The magnesium and sulfur in Epsom salts make plants germinate faster with higher yields and more blooms. Magnesium creates an environment conducive to growth by helping seeds to germinate, increasing chlorophyll production and improving phosphorus and nitrogen uptake. Sulfur is also a key element in plant growth, helping produce vitamins.  Epsom Salt makes for a great fertilizer and pesticide!

Use as a fertilizer: one tablespoon per gallon of water. 

Use it as a pesticide: sprinkle on + around plants rendering them foul-tasting to garden pests.
