What does Epsom Salts do for my plants?
It is the only mineral constituent of the chlorophyll molecule, so it is essential for photosynthesis. If a plant is deficient in magnesium, its ability to carry on photosynthesis is decreased.

What do symptoms of magnesium deficiency in a plant look like?
It first appears as yellowing of the tissue between the veins of the older leaves on the plant. In some species, they will also turn a reddish-purple. As the deficiency progresses, the leaves become uniformly yellow.  Magnesium is most likely to occur in sandy soils and/or acid soils.

What happens when Epsom Salts is applied?
Magnesium is absorbed through either the plant roots or foliage. It is quite mobile in the plant and is readily translocated in the leaves from the older plant tissue to the new growth.

What does the addition of Epsom Salts do besides correct magnesium deficiency?
It enhances the color of blossoms and leaves, promotes new flowers and fruit, improves the root system, and improves the length of the stem.

What is the main usage of Epsom Salts in the garden?
Primarily it is recommended on roses to improve the bloom. However, it helps any flowering plant.  If a known magnesium deficiency exists, it is essential for plant growth.

Application Rates:

  • Foliar Spray: Apply 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) per 1-2 gallons of water. This solution will cover 500-1000 sqaure feet. Apply 2-4 applications throughout the season.

  • Soil Treatment: Apply 1/4 cup to the base of the plant early in the spring when new growth begins. A followup summer application may also be made.
