How To Use Epsom Salt To Help Your Cucumbers Grow
Cucumbers grow fast and will leave you with piles of cucumbers by the end of the season. If you really want a bountiful harvest this year, you should give your plants Epsom salt.
Mix 1/2 tablespoon of Epsom salt with half a gallon of water and water your plants as usual. You can also transfer it into a spray bottle and spray it over your plant's foliage.
A single dose will promote healthy growth and more cucumbers to harvest. Water it during the growing season to ensure you always have new fruit to pick.
Epsom salt is beneficial to cucumber plants because it has magnesium and sulfur, which boosts plant growth and helps the roots
to absorb the nutrients they need.
