Epsom salt, chemically Magnesium Sulphate
is an easily available inexpensive naturally occurring mineral salt that has a variety
of home remedy and even medical applications. In this Video, am gonna list out the top 5
uses of Epsom salt in gardening. Coming up.. 1. Seed Germination: Magnesium is proven to help
in seed germination and helps to strengthen strengthening the cell walls, leading to much
stronger seedlings. The formula here is make a solution of 1 teaspoons
of Epsom salt in 1 liter of water and spray on the solution about two to three times on
your seedling tray. 2. Improve Foliage: Meaning increase the greenery
of your leaves or lawn grass. Magnesium is an essential component in the
production of chlorophyll which is the green pigment in plants. Just sprinkle the salt around your plant soil
like about 1 or 2 teaspoons every month or so. 3. Prevent Leaf Curling which is due to magnesium
deficiency. For this sprinkle some Epsom salt around the
soil or for quicker results make a solution of 1 or 2 teaspoons in 1 litre of water and
spray it on the leaves directly � that�s called Foliar Feeding. 4. Transplant Shock: When we do repotting of
a plant, the roots invariably face what is called as transplant shock. Just water the plant with the same magnesium
sulphate solution to counter this problem. 5. Nutrient Absorption: Magnesium is a component
of many commercial fertilizer products because it facilitates the roots to uptake or absorb
vital nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, etc.

by Epsom salt. Directly sprinkle on these insects. 7. Other uses are to get healthier Fruits and
Vegetables especially tomatoes, peppers, etc. And Also a special mention on its use on Rose
