Supercharge Your Garden with this Miracle Ingredient

Deter Pests and Boost Your Garden with This Miracle Ingredient
Did you know: Epsom salt can be your garden's greatest ally?

You can easily find this miracle ingredient at your local pharmacy for about $4 for a 3-lb bag.

While it's typically used for pain and stress relief, it's the magnesium found in Epsom salt that actually works wonders for plant growth.

To improve seed germination, simply add 1 cup per 100 square feet of tilled soil, or sprinkle 1–2 tablespoons into the hole before dropping in your seeds. This will not only lead to stronger seedlings, it will also encourage blossoming and fruit production, without the need for costly chemical fertilizers.

And to help deter slugs, snails and other vegetable bugs, try sprinkling some Epsom salt around the garden for natural pest control.

So give Epsom salt a try, and watch your garden -- and savings -- flourish!
