Post  LeeAnne12 on 5/29/2012, 8:53 pm

I've read the older posts that suggest the use of powdered milk and Epsom salts to stop blossom end rot, but I can't find anywhere that tells how much of each. ...so does anyone know how much I should use?

Thanks!

Less than 1/4 cup or a woman's small handful is what I use.

...so I got my son to pick up the Epsom Salt and it has peppermint extract in it. Will the peppermint hurt the tomatoes? Thanks again!

i doubt it will hurt it, and in fact it might help repel some insects.

So you combine 1/4 cup each of powdered milk and epsom salt. Is that per plant? So if I had 4 plants I would use 1 cup of each and then sprinkle 1/2 cup of that mixture around each plant and water it in?

I found this interesting bit of info which I think would apply to MM as it is usually high in nitrogen.

High nitrogen fertilization reduces magnesium availability, especially on
soils high in potassium or aluminum.


This is from an article on grass tetany in cattle:
