Has anyone used epsom salt on cucumbers or squash? I know it's good for tomatoes and peppers and roses.

Nope--but it sure makes rose bushes have wonderfully bright roses!! Makes the colors vivid!!
Don't ask me why I just had a professional gardner tell me and I'd done it with lots of success!!

I've seen it all over. I have found it in the Health and Beauty sections of different stores. Dollar General has the best price in my area.


I use it on all my vegetable plants once a week. I have no idea if it is helping or not but they all look healthy.

I bought the local (publix) supermarket brand. It's in the pharmacy section.

Buy the generic, Magnesium Sulphate. It's less expensive. We got a 4# bag for $4.29.
