A Pinner says: this is the BEST Weed Spray. I made 3 gallons for around $4.00 last year after seeing a pin. Worked better than Round Up & killed the weeds/stray grass on first application. One gallon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 1/2 c table salt, 1 tsp Dawn. Mix and pour into a smaller spray bottle.

Keep the fern in the same pots they come in, every other day submerge them in a 5 gallon bucket filled with 1/2 cup of epson salts & 3 gallons of regular water until the soil stops bubbling, then hang up to drip dry... ferns will be dark green, glossy, and 3x3 by September from ferns that start out with 7 fronds in May.

In the garden, Epson salts is a “boost” for your plants. The magnesium in the salts is used by plants for photosynthesis. And as a fertilizer, it will help to increase flower and fruit production. Mix 2 tbsp into 1 gallon of water and use it to revive a Peace Lily or other houseplants. Water with it when transplanting tomatoes or peppers and then sprinkle a spoonful around the plants when they begin to flower. Spray the foliage of roses or sprinkle a little around the base of your plants.
