Use epsom salts and sugar when planting tomatoes
by Marie Bretton
An avid garden and greenhouse owner told me years ago to use Epsom salts and sugar when planting tomatoes. Put a tablespoon of each in the hole and mix it in. The salts have minerals, which encourage growth. Sugar encourages bacteria activity, which enriches soil.
If your tomatoes get too tall before you set them out, make cuttings. Tomatoes root easily. This can double your crop! Works for me.
