Epsom salt is a versatile product that can be used for many things. Everything from bath salts, personal hygiene and bath bombs. But the most important thing about epsom salt is the benefit plants make of it. We've already covered epsom salt's effects on chili and its uses, but what about tomatoes? Tomatoes love epsom salt! You can see with your own eyes that they feel better when given epsom salt, but it is also scientifically proven. Epsom salt is not a salt, but a mineral called magnesium sulfate that is made naturally in nature. There are many types of epsom salt from different mines, some are pure, some are heat treated, some are chemically purified. The best for the plants is natural epsom salt. So how can it help your tomatoes? If you have tomatoes in pots, it is easy to give them epsom salt. When the plants are half-grown, use about 1 tablespoon which you spread on the soil and water in. You can do this every 14 days. When the plants are large and starting or bearing fruit, use 1 tablespoon of epsom salt on top of the soil, which you water in once a week. The Epsom salt contributes to the magnesium balance and gives you a better, stronger and larger root system. It also contributes to the absorption of water. The very best effect is that it prevents end blossom rot, while at the same time it helps with better flowering. When you have large vines with tomatoes and tall large plants, you can calculate about 1 tablespoon per 40cm of plant height. You then do this every other week! When you mix the soil for tomatoes, it is a good idea to mix in about a couple of fistfuls of epsom salt in about 30L of soil. And when sowing tomatoes, you can use 1 tsp per liter of water and water the seeds with it, for faster germination. The benefits of epsom salt are many, so there is no reason not to use it. The tomatoes will be more resistant to blossom than rot, the plants bear and keep tomatoes longer, bigger fruit, sweeter tomatoes, better germination and better plant growth.
