I had a problem of yellow leaves with my tomato plants and a good friend from the tville forum recommended me salts of epsom, for me it was something incredible that in two days the plants recovered their green color. I wanted to investigate more about empson salts and I have read in Spanish websites that say epsom salts are also useful to reduce the stress of definitive transplant. Anyone use it for transplantation? I copy and paste an article in Spain about epsom salts in the transplant.
Unknown to many, Epsom salt has several advantages in gardening and organic gardening.
Its importance has been one of nature's best kept secrets and it has long been a favorite for many gardeners and horticulturists.
It helps to grow more, and that the vegetables are sweeter and tastier and pink with the color of the most vibrant flower.
Useful in seed germination.
It is also widely used in home remedies such as a saline laxative and analgesic.
Epsom salts work best in soils that are slightly deficient in magnesium or high in calcium and potassium (soils found in western countries).
Seed germination improves.
Epsom salt can be used in the planting stage to help seed germination.
It acts as an amendment to the soil before planting thereby giving your garden a strong boost from the beginning.
Apply 1 - 2 tablespoons to the soil hole per seed or use 1 cup of salt per 100 square feet of tilled soil to improve results.
Increase in nutrient absorption
The application of Epsom salt to the soil helps facilitate the absorption of nutrients from the organic soil and the faster absorption of nutrients for plants, reducing to a minimum level, and eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers.
Due to the abundance of magnesium it plays a very important role in the formation of the flower.
This important for gardeners, you will agree that the application of Epsom salt helps roses produce larger flowers and more in the flowers.
Epsom salt also increases chlorophyll production, that is, the fastest growth rate for roses.
Shock Transplant Counter
Epsom Salts can also play a vital role in plant nursery transplants in the field.
Epsom salt helps plants adapt to their new environment and also helps overcome injured roots, transplant shock.
Keep in mind that it is important that the roots of the plants do not come in contact with the salt, put a layer of salt around them ..
Magnesium plays an essential role in the production of foliage due to its chlorophyll production.
It is quite evident that plants that suffer from this deficiency can be identified by their yellowish leaves.
The application of Epsom salt around your plants helps make your foliage healthier.
Prevent the deformation of the leaves
Applying a mixture of 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt in a gallon of water and applied directly to the leaves will help prevent the deformation of the leaves caused by magnesium deficiency in plants.
Determine garden pests
While Epsom salt is not as effective against pests, as much as table salt (sodium chloride), it can help deter pests.
Epsom salt crystals are sharp and when splashed around plants, they can irritate the bodies and legs of unwanted pests in the same way as other preventive agents.
The fruit grows sweeter
It is a proven fact that the most important stage in the life cycle of any plant is the production of fruits just after the flowering stage.
Applying Epsom salt to the plant using the same methods and amounts indicated above will lead to improved chlorophyll levels that lead to an increase in energy that involves more sugar, which allows the plant to produce more fruit yields. sweeter and healthier.
In a recent experiment, it was observed that the application of Epsom salt to tomatoes really helped to balance magnesium deficiency clearly for most tomato growers.
It also leads to much tastier tomatoes
For tomatoes, the size ratio of the fruits of the tomato plant plant makes it susceptible to calcium deficiency (final rot flower) but the systematic application of Epsom salts to our tomatoes worked at perfection and the positive result they gave us was healthy, tastier tomato fruits ..
Our results revealed that tomatoes must have Epsom salt twice as much as other plants.
Application in tomatoes:
Epsom salt dissolved - 2 tablespoons per gallon of water, every 2 weeks is magic ..
The most efficient application method for delivering magnesium to these plants is through the foliage feeding method.
It is quite evident that Epsom salt is an addition to any organic gardener and is almost impossible to stop using in

In the garden, once a year I give my tomatoes a sprinkled 'ring' around the plant to help with blossom end rot. Seems to help.
Of years I had not put a pinch into the hole, I found that it takes a lot longer for the plant to
Take off and it is not as green and happy

The only things we have to fear in the kitchen are hot oil and falling knives.
