Epsom Salt For Your Plants

They say epsom salt does wonder to your plants. I got a big bag at Walmart for $2.89. Not expensive. They say epsom salt provides magnesium that sometimes gets washed off every time you water your plants. It makes your tomatoes grow bigger and healthier! Needless to say, I put epsom salt on my tomatoes, and Noah's as soon as I learned about it. I read that you can also use this on roses and azaleas. So, I did the same. I've read varied instructions though on how much you could put. Others say 1 tablespoon to a gallon, or 2 cups to a gallon, etc. Oh well...I read it won't hurt your plants so you need not worry much about the measurements. I sprinkled a tbsp around the base, I sprayed some on the plants themselves. Every other week, I have to do this. Oh, can't wait to see the results myself. More roses, bigger tomatoes... :)
