Customer Questions & Answers

Boron

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.
Asked by: Anonymous
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. Please research it yourself because many people just "cut and paste" articles without actually reading what they are posting. Borax is used in fertilizers around the world.

HOW HEAVY DO YOU SPREAD EPSON SALT ON LAWN

Asked by: Anonymous
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 pets. Your lawn will look better, need to be mowed less often and can handle the heat. Best kept secret in lawn care.

What would happen if the Epson salt from say wall mart for a foot bath or ? when used on the soil and or garden and does this kind of Epson salt also have sulfer in it. Also if you save rain water can it be put in the saved water to help keep out mosquito larva until it is used to water the plants.
Asked by: DIGGER
Howdy DIGGER, In correct amounts epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) helps seeds germinate, makes plants grow bushier, produces more flowers, increases chlorophyll production. It also provides vital nutrients to supplement your regular fertilizer and deters pests, such as slugs and voles. However Epsom salt alone is not a perfect fertilizer. As for rain water, if using a rain barrel to collect rain water for watering your plants, put a couple goldfish in the barrel. They will keep your rain barrels larvae-free. If this is not an option for you, you could use Mosquito Control Rings instead. Mosquito Control Rings will kill larvae up to 30 days and is safe to use around humans, pets, wildlife and fish. Happy digging, Coach Dave

Can this be used to remove tree stumps?

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.
