Epsom Salt and the Garden

I was told by an experienced landscaper to use EPSOM SALT on my young watermelon. After the melon vines were about 1-2 feet, I applied the EMSOM SALT and WOW, they are growing and producing melons like crazy. Can EPSOM SALT be effective other garden vegetables the same way?
