Pennington Epsom Salt is a great way to give your soil the nutrients necessary for your plants to grow to their fullest potential. Epsom salt contains magnesium and sulfur, two nutrients that are crucial to plant health. When the soil is lacking either nutrient, plant's leaves can yellow, fruits and vegetables will not get their full color, yield or flavor and flowers will not bloom fully. Thats why Pennington Epsom Salt is so important and necessary. It is also completely safe and environmentally friendly.
