Epsom salt can be added to the soil or you can use eggshells. Both of these methods though take time for the calcium to become available to the plant. In most cases though, there is enough calcium in the soil, but the plant is not getting enough water to be able to use it. Try increasing the amount of water the plants are getting to help them take up more calcium.
