We have artesian bore water & it seems to kill small plants, can I add something to the soil to help? We have black soil.

Good quality black soil. Apparently the bore water must contain a bit of sulfur & does taste a little salty but not too salty, can drink it but it ain’t great.
The last resident said it killed all there little plants but not sure if they wet the plants when watering or just the base. Wanting to know if I can add anything to help neutralise the water?

You won’t be able to know until you have the water tested. This will let you know what is in there, what to add, and what to try and remove. Depending on the type of salt, and amount, this is what is likely killing the plants.
