Will this help add some Boron into the soil? My banana trees have a calcium and boron deficiency. Easy it seems to correct the calcium, but I can't find Boron in anything.

Answer: 
Boron is available from Borax (completely natural), found in the laundry section of most stores. Sprinkle small amounts on the surface of the ground around the trees every week. Great stuff, and fairly inexpensive. Look for more info on the internet from the Borax company. I use it on my plants, and also for laundry.

Hello,
Epsom Salt will not help with a boron deficiency in plants. Epsom Salt will provide magnesium and sulfur but not boron.

Answer: 
Best to apply dissolved in water with a sprayer but it is acceptable to drop the raw salt directly on the lawn and water it in. 6 lbs per 2500 sq ft. The primary benefit in lawn use is how the salt slows chute growth while promoting root growth and greening. This helps with drought tolerance more than anything else I know of. It can be applied as often as every two weeks. Totally non-toxic to humans and Read More

Greetings,
My name is Tom, also known as HD116 at Home Depot's How to Community. I am here today addressing a few product questions and saw yours.
As I was not as familiar with the use of Magnesium (the key component of Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate) in the garden or lawn, I did a bit of research and found that a thin application can help with greening and the health of your plants and grasses. I would recommend a soil test as well as posting the question to our Lawn and Garden experts at www.community.homedepot.com. They can likely give you a more informed opinion than my limited research revealed.

Can this be used to remove tree stumps?

This question is from 7 lb. Epsom Salt
September 15, 2016
I've read that to get rid of a thick tree stump after cutting down a tree, drill holes about 3" apart into the remaining stump and fill the holes with Epsom salt. This will cause the stump to dry out and decompose over time (months). Repeated filling of the holes is required. And be sure to cover the stump with plastic to prevent rain water from entering the holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stuff is Terrific! The date palm and lantana in our parkway were barely hanging on despite watering, sun, etc. One week after broadcasting this epsom salt over the area, everything is noticeably healthier, greener and looks like it is growing rather than dying. Now, we use it thinly broadcast around our whole garden, roses, fruit trees, groundcover every two weeks or so to keep everyone happy. And, we don't have to worry about poisoning birds, cats, kids. REALLY, really happy. And it is fairly priced for regular use. Great find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for your garden! My potted flowers and garden are definitely improved with this salt. It's February in CA and everything just started to blossom. I add this salt to everything..even to fresh cut flowers - they stay longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great gardening product for flowers, fruit and vegetables. I use it by spreading and working it into the soil around flower and fruit trees and also sprinkling it inside potted flowers. Will start to use it as a foliage spray next year and see how much better it works. Good results with some jalapeno peppers, figs, calamondin and roses and I'm starting to mix it up with the potting soil to get a head start on the plants.
