  • this is according to the Epsom Salt council
    For roses, dissolve the salts in water, 1 tablespoon per foot of plant height, and dose your plants every two weeks. You can also spray the plants with the same solution to discourage pests, or scratch half a cup of the granules around the base of roses to encourage flowering canes.

    Absolutely! Put a couple of tablespoons of epsom salts around the base of your roses and water them in well. The magnesium in the salts helps produce more flowers.

    Hello Barry; When I feed my roses, I do such using a large bucket full of water, to which I add three Tablespoons of Epsom salts. I mix this well and water the base of each bush.
    I hope that this will help you! Take Care.
