Can Sugar and Epsom Salts Help Your Plants Grow?
According to what I've read sugar doesn't really feed the plant itself. It feeds the micro-organisms that live around the roots of the plant. It's these organisms that break down nutrients making it easier for the plant to absorb them.
Epsom Salts contain hydrated magnesium sulfate which are necessary for plant growth. Magnesium helps strengthen the plant's cell walls which aids in drawing up nutrients from the soil.
Since neither of these items are harmful I'm going to try them in my garden this year - both vegetables and flowers and will report back any outstanding results!
Does anyone know about these two common substances and how they might work on the garden?
Best wishes, Linda
