Hello,

I read an article here about using Epsom Salt for seedlings and soil, however, I didn't see the ratios which were used to dilute the Salt/Water. Does anyone know what the ratio is?

Thanks,
Teresa

An all-purpose dilution rate is one Tablespoon of epsom salts to a gallon of water; this can be used as a foliar spray or as a soil drench.
