Q.Going To Try Using Epsom Salt Spray For Blossom End Rot, How Often Do I Do This?
I have had no squash produced in 2 seasons. I thought they were not getting pollinated due to no bees. But I have bees this season and they have been pollinating. So I have come to the conclusion that my issue is blossom end rot. I am going to be doing the Epsom spray, as it’s too late to add lime to the soil and we don’t eat many eggs. How often do I do this?

Be sure to test your soil before adding anything. It could be a pH issue, too much nitrogen, not enough phosphorus and potassium, or a number of things. Usually, blossom end rot will present itself as, both, calcium and magnesium deficiencies. The fruit will form, mostly, normally until the end. Then it will start to rot at the bottom.
