More Epsom Salts Uses in the Garden

House Plants

Dissolve two tablespoons of Epsom Salts in 4.5 litres of water and use once a month instead of normal watering. With plants that have been in a pot for a long time this helps to clear the accumulation of salts in clogged root systems and improves plant health by allowing nutrients to be more readily absorbed.

Flowers

One tablespoon of Ultra Epsom Salts per 4.5 litres of water is the ratio for flowering plants. Use in a spray tank or watering can after first planting, later when you observe some growth and finally when the plants begin to flower. Flowering plants treated this way will bloom more profusely.

Roses

Roses thrive when enriched by Epsom Salts. Their leaves will be greener and healthier and you’ll get more roses. If you’re planting new rose plant, let them soak in half a cup of Epsom Salts per 4.5 litres of water. This will strengthen the roots. At the beginning of the season work in half a cup of Epsom Salts into the soil at the base of each plant.

Shrubs

Work in one tablespoon of Epsom Salts per 2.74 square metres of shrubbery into the soil, over the root area, which improves the absorbtion of nutrients and repeat every 2-4 weeks.

Lawns

Epsom Salts use on lawns prevents yellowing giving you lusher, softer, greener grass. You can use a spray tank, lawn spread or hose with spray attachment. Dilute 1.3kg per 116 square metre in enough water to make a concentrated solution.

Trees

Trees also benefit from Epsom Salts applications. Make your trees strong and healthy for years to come by adding it to the soil to be absorbed by the roots. Fruiting and flowering trees will also produce more fruit and blooms. Work in two tablespoons per 0.84 m2 into the soil over the root area three or four times a year. Doing this particularly at the beginning of each growing season prepares trees for weather changes.
