Buy Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulphate) for your garden & crops, Australia & NZ supplier for premium quality, yet economically priced Epsom Salts. Magnesium and sulfur are the two major components of Epsom Salts. Magnesium (Mg) deficiency is very common & affects our health. Crops are grown in over fertilized, and magnesium deficient soils, and so the food we consume lacks magnesium, therefore our bodies uptake very little magnesium from our diet. Epsom Salts aid in the absorption of phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen which in turn make plants and trees grow bushier, produce more flowers and more fruit! Magnesium is critical for seed germination and vital to the production of chlorophyll, which plants and trees use to transform sunlight into food.

Unlike most commercial fertilizers, which build up in the soil over time, Epsom Salt is not persistent so you cannot over use it. Tests by the National Gardening Association confirm - roses fertilized with Epsom Salts grow bushier and produce more flowers, while the compound makes pepper plants grow larger than those treated with commercial fertilizer alone. A handful of epsom salt at the base of gardenias will stop yellowing leaves! It is used by commercial citrus growers to ensure a bountiful crop of luscious oranges, lemons, mandarins and limes!
