Epson Salt Ideas For Your Garden

Using Epson Salt in my garden is a great idea.

I’m glad I found this interesting article about it, I didn’t realize this would make such a difference to my garden and how my plants have flourished in the process. I'm very interested to see how it will work on my plants but using Epson salt on my trees and lawn is very interesting.

I wanted to show everyone what a difference it makes with and without with only water being added all of these plants was planted on the same day and time. I am showing you ones I am growing with the sq. ft. method.

I do have several baby tomatoes now.

However now the non-Epsom salt plants will be fed it also this was only to show those what a difference it makes. I'd highly suggest putting some away it has many other uses for a survival and daily living. It is actually a mineral and not a salt it is like giving your plants a mega vit. shot.

In your Garden start with this:

House Plants

Apply one tablespoon per foot of height for each plant every two weeks.


Apply one teaspoon per foot of height for each plant every two weeks.

Evergreens, Azaleas, Rhododendrons

Apply one tablespoon per nine square feet (3’x3’) over the root zone every two to four weeks.


Apply three pounds per 1250 square feet (25’x 50’)

Apply six pounds per 2500 square feet (50’x 50’)

Apply twelve pounds per 5000 square feet (50’x 100’)


Apply two tablespoons per nine square feet (3’x 3’) over root zone every four months.

Like your body, your plants will suffer from a lack of nutrients. Just a spoonful of Epsom Salt is like a multi vitamin, and can prevent weak stalks and yellow leaves. And for big, healthy vegetables, sprinkle Epsom Salt around the base of each plant.

Q: Why is Epsom Salt good for plants?

A: Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate. Magnesium is a mineral plants need for a stronger root structure and to facilitate the uptake of chlorophyll. Many master gardeners and landscape professionals advocate its use.


I’m glad I used this in my garden, on my lawn and more, and I’m happy with the results! I will continue to use this again and do more testing other plants around my house.
