Magnesium is an essential nutrient for the production of chlorophyll. Without the correct levels foliage will turn brown and wither.
Through the application of Vitax Epsom Salts, magnesium levels are raised enabling the growth of healthy plants.
- Use as a base dressing or liquid feed
- Apply throughout the growing season as required
- Best used as a liquid feed.
Tomatoes and houseplants are particularly susceptible to magnesium deficiency. Early signs include yellowing between the veins of older leaves.
Vitax Epsom Salts can be used in their granular form or diluted and applied as a liquid fertiliser.
Used as a base dressing, Vitax Epsom Salts should be worked into the soil. Alternatively you can dilute it with water and apply to leaves with a foliar spray or watering can.
Epsom Salts can also be added to other specialist liquid feeds.
Care must be taken when applying as a granular fertiliser to ensure no residue is left on leaves or stems.
