I use Epsom salt around the base of tomatoes and scratch it into the soil. I did the cucumbers too. I hope I didn't put too much.

You probably didn't especially if you have gotten a lot of rain. The salts will dissolve and leech out into the soil.

LOL We need rain, but I think it will be okay.
Our biggest problem is a lack of bees for pollinating.
I have seen one Honey bee, no Bumble bees, maybe
a couple of wasps.

Oh Joyous thought everyone was getting loads of rain....this has been the wettest summer I can remember. I am not complaining but do wish the rain could be spread out over a more even time frame.

Thanks chrliesgal!

I guess when it says it will kill anything you spray it on means you should spray it on your veggies.

I will try this on the weeds! I have tons of them!

Glad, do not spray too close to your veggies.
Actually just vinegar works. Epsom salt is
beneficial to vegetable growth.

Wish I knew about this years ago. Does the spray need to be concentrated on small areas?

Lightfoot, I can't answer that.
I don't use it. My daughter told me.

If you are asking about the formula I submitted LFF, we don't ...we just mix it and spray what we want gone! ha/ha But don't even go near something if you are not sure or don't want it dead! ha/ha

I sprinkled Epsom salt around our tomato plants this morning. Also cucumber plants.
