tional benefits. Repeat this everytwo to four weeks for optimal re-sults. Ah, you are thinking if it can dothat for flowers and veggies, will itwork on my lawn? Some claimthat it will revitalize your lawn,make it greener and more sustain-able, it is particularly useful forpreventing a yellowing lawn justas it helps prevent yellowingleaves in houseplants. The recom-mended amount for lawns is threepounds per 1250 square feet(25’x50’). If using a sprayer makesure you have enough water tocompletely dissolve the salt into aconcentrated solution. Adroughtyear may not be the time to trythis as lawns are so droughtstressed the yellowing is probablynot due to lack of magnesium.There you have it! Oh, whatabout the grasshoppers, the jury isstill out. We had quite an infesta-tion of hoppers on our salviaplants so they got dosed with a so-lution of Epsom salt, one table-spoon to one gallon of water, liter-ally dumped over the whole plant.Upon inspection a few days laterthere were a lot less grasshopperson the salvia. We will keep test-ing, we are also using it on sometomato and peppers plants and notothers. That verdict may take awhile.

Epsom Salt continued
 Alittle more looking into theEpsom salt saga. We find that yes,tomatoes do like Epsom salt!Tomatoes are prone to magnesiumdeficiency later in the growing sea-son, and display this through yel-low leaves and less production.They can benefit from Epsom salttreatments both at the beginningof their planting and throughouttheir seasonal life. As the tomatomatures, either work in one table-spoon of Epsom salt per foot of plant height around the base of the tomato plant (individually), orcreate sprayer/sprinkler solutionand use that every two weeks.Peppers are also prone to mag-nesium deficiency and thrivemuch more fully with the use of Epsom salt in the same way astomatoes except twice a week forpeppers. Astudy conducted by theNational Gardening Associationdiscovered that four out of sixhome gardeners noticed that theirEpsom salt-treated peppers werelarger than those that were un-treated.Flower gardens also blossommore vibrantly and beautifullywith the use of Epsom salt in thesoil and as a liquid solution. Manyplants benefit from the magne-sium of Epsom salt, again thistreatment of one tablespoon pergallon of water every two weeks issuggested. It is also effective forshrubs, particularly evergreens.For shrubs, work in one table-spoon of Epsom salt per ninesquare feet of bush into the soil,over the root zone, which allowsthe shrubs to absorb the nutri-
