Epsom Salt


A recent search for a list of  shade loving shrubs in one of Howard Garrett’s gardening books, Plants For Houston And The Gulf Coast,  reminded me of the use of Epsom salt for plants!
Apparently Epsom Salt  is a well reputed and popular supplement in organic gardening.  Since this is my preferred method of gardening, I did some searching for more details.   There are many good sites for learning  about the benefits of using Epsom salts for gardening, with the recommended  proportions, and the scientific basis for doing so.  I am eager to learn more and  use it.  From what I have learned thus far it is beneficial to plants indoors and out.  I will give it a try and report back!
