I've heard that when you plant seeds or seedlings, if you put Epsom salt into the hole it will actually make the plant grow taller and leafier. I bet this would be a great help for Alaskan's during our short growing season. Has anyone tried it? I will definitely be giving it a shot. I guess you can substitute it with sugar? Because epsom salts are illegal now, I suppose I'll be trying sugar. Sounds worthwhile. I'll pretty much try anything here!
