Some 400 years ago in 1618 a cow discovered Epsom salts when it refused to drink from a spring in what is now the middle of the Wells Estate on Epsom Common, the water tasted bitter and was tested and found to contain  Epsom Salts. Epsom became to the first public Spa in the country and from the visitors grew horse racing and then the Derby!

Epsom salts is  good for plants improving flowers blooms, enhancing a plants green colour and helping them grow bushier.

It is really good for plants that need lots of magnesium like roses, tomatoes and peppers.
