Five Days into Epsom Salt Test by gerben | 10-Jun-27 | Body | 2 comments Started June 21st Related Blogs 2 Comments GardenCalifornia on 2010/06/26 at 20:10 Yeah for sure there is a difference. I’m curious to know if it helps fruit production too though… I know that too much nitrate will make TONS if big, healthy green leaves, but little or not fruit. But if this epsom salt works well for fruit too, then I’ll be getting me some next season 🙂 To prevent blossom end rot, I just save egg shells from eggs I eat, let them dry out, and then powder them in my food processor to sprinkle over the dirt for extra calcium. Maters LOVE that! 🙂 Marihani on 2010/06/26 at 20:33 Definitely looks like the non-epsom is yellower and less happy. How often do you add the salts?
