Epsom salts

cloverIf clover starts growing in your vege patch, I’ve been told it’s a sure sign of nitrogen deficiency. I’m picking that’s right given the space that used to be occupied by my under-achieving heavy-feeding brussels sprouts now has a lovely patch of clover, coming up through the pea straw. I’ll be adding lots more organic matter into this little spot before I plant anything else here. In the meantime, it just lies sleeping under it’s little blanket of mulch.

I’ve just added epsom salts to water (rate = 1 Tablespoon to 3 litres of water) and watered that area of the garden. Will I see results? I have no idea. Is this a conclusive, rigorously scientific test? Oh no. But I shall wait and watch and hopefully learn a little.
