In respect to this, will Epsom salt kill tomato plants?
Blossom end rot is a stress-induced disorder that affects tomato fruit. It is not usually related to a deficiency of nutrients in the soil, so adding Epsom salts won't help prevent it. However, magnesium will compete with calcium uptake in tomato plants.
How often do you put Epsom salt on tomatoes?
The ideal solution ratio is 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt per foot of plant height. If your tomato plant is two feet in height, you'll be feeding it two tablespoons of Epsom salt at least twice a month! Once on the 15th and another on the 30th would be perfect. For other plants, the general rule is once every six weeks.
