Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate) 250g - £2.50

A Chilli Grower's Secret Weapon!

Epsom Salts, named after the town in Surrey here they were first found, back in Shakesperian times, are more scientifically known as Magnesium Sulphate. They are many vegetable grower's best friend, particularly those partial to peppers and tomatoes, which commonly suffer from Magnesium deficiency.

Magnesium deficiency is characterised by yellowing between the leaf veins and also causes stunted growth. Evenly yellowing leaves is a sign of sulphur deficiency and both these problems can quickly be solved with a foliar spraying of Epsom Salts.

Magnesium Sulphate is not just good for these common deficiencies; it encourages the uptake of other trace elements, such as nitrogen, commonly deficient in overwatered plants. Signs of nitrogen deficiency are the yellowing of outer leaves and stunted growth.

Epsom Salts encourages chlorophyl production thus improving the growth and overall health of the plant. World of Chillies recommends a foliar spraying of diluted Epsom Salts (2 teaspoons per litre cool water) every two weeks throughout the growing season. This can be doubled if you have a deficiency problem. You should see leaves greening within a few days.
