Epsom Salts – 1 kg
Epsom Salts provide a rapid cure for magnesium deficiency in plants.
Magnesium is vital for the production of chlorophyll without which plant foliage will turn brown and wither. The early symptoms of the problem is a yellowing between the veins on older leaves. Tomatoes and house plants can be particularly susceptible to this deficiency.
Epsom Salts provide a simple and very effective remedy. Apply as soon as the problem is spotted. Either work into the soil as a base dressing or dissolve the salts in water and apply directly to the leaves with a sprayer or watering can.
Directions for use:
As base dressing (before sowing or planting): Work into the soil at the rate of 70g per square metre (2 oz per square yard.)
As a liquid feed: Epsom Salts are best applied dissolved in water at the rate of 20g per litre of water. Apply to the leaves with a sprayer or watering can, or add at monthly intervals to normal liquid feeds.
