Here are questions related to Epsom Salts for Plants.
How much Epsom salt do I add to a gallon of water for flowers?
The correct mix is one tablespoon of Epsom salts per gallon of water.
Do you add the Epsom salts (1 TB/gallon of water) alone or with your nutrient recipe?

Depending on the size of the pot, or area of ground, I just grab a fist full and throw it in then water. I have very tiny hands though so I don't over do it.

Epsom salts works wonders for houseplants because the magnesium sulfate helps cleanse the soil of harmful salts that tend to accumulate in the pots.
Give your roses a growth spurt, water them with an Epsom salts solution in May, and then again in June.
Mix two tablespoons of Epsom salts in a gallon of water, apply half of it to the soil in May, the other half in June. Epsom salts provide magnesium, which will stimulate growth.
