Epsom salt and fish fertilizer [youtube.com] are two of the best fertilizers you can add to the garden over the growing season. For vegetables, 2 tablespoons of Epsom salt [sfgate.com] and 2 tablespoons of fish emulsion [sfgate.com] per gallon. Alternatively, you can get fish parts for free from fish stores and just bury it in the soil [gardeningchannel.com].

I made the mistake of buying them from home improvement stores, when Walmart is much cheaper. Home Depot and Lowe's sell Epsom salt 7 lb for $6.50 (HD [homedepot.com]; LOW [lowes.com]) and fish fertilizer 32 oz (1/4 of a gallon) for $10 (HD [homedepot.com]; LOW [lowes.com]) or the larger 1 gallon for $20 (HD [homedepot.com]; LOW [lowes.com]).

Equate Multi-Purpose Epsom Salt
- 8 Lb [walmart.com] for $5. Price per pound: WMT 63c, HD 93c, LOW 97c.

Alaska Fish Plant Fertilizer 5-1-1
- 32 fl oz [walmart.com] for $5.86. Price per ounce: WMT 18c, HD 31c, LOW 32c.
- 1 gallon [walmart.com] for $17.42. Price per ounce: WMT 14c, HD 16c, LOW 16c.

$35 minimum for free shipping to home.

Thumbs up on the epsom salts - that is a great price. I wish I could give you another thumbs up about sharing the idea of using the ES for landscaping, it appears there are a lot of great uses for it (including making tomatoes sweeter!)

you may be right, but I thought I shopped target and Walmart and they were both at the 2.00/lb last year. Anyway, bulk Epsom is around $0.60/lb in the 50 lbs bags, and since a quick google search shows prices 2x-3x more expensive than than Walmart and target, I'd say this is a slick deal.
