Using Magnesium in the Garden

November 15th, 2017

My mom always used epsom salts in the garden, she would use them on her tomatoes and peppers. Last year, I started to do the same. It made quite a difference in the amount of fruit and health of the plants. There was zero blossom end rot with a monthly magnesium drink.

I use Ancient Minerals brand, which is the same brand I use for myself when I’m soaking my feet.

I simply add one quarter of a cup to my three gallon watering can, stir to dissolve, then water the leaves and soil of my tomatoes & peppers. Check back tomorrow and I’ll tell you about another way to use magnesium in the garden.

Do you have any gardening tips/tricks to share?
