I hear there is a lot of benefits using Epson Salt in the Garden, never used it. I was reading it has a lot of Magnesium for greener plants. I have a local Rite Aid to buy it, is there a special kind to buy? or is Epson Salt just Epson Salt? Like to try some on my Indoor Plants. How much Salt to 1 gallon of water?

One tablespoon per gallon, Mindy. I have used it on my tomato plants by applying a little once a week. A little was about a cup or two of the solution per week. The rest of the time I just watered normally. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
