Applying Epsom Salt – Basics

Here are the basic methods and general rates for applying Epsom salt to plants and soil. NOTE: It is always advisable to have a soil test done before applying any nutrients to soil.

Soil Incorporation – Broadcast 1 cup per 100 square feet, mix well into before planting.

At Planting Time – When planting seedlings or new plants, dig a hole and place about 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt in the bottom of hole and cover with a thin layer of dirt, place the plant in the hole and finish planting.

Pre-Planting Soak – Prior to planting, soak root balls in 1/2 cup of Epsom salt diluted in one gallon of water.
