I haven't tried it with squash or pumpkins... but have you tried putting 1 tbs. epsom salt in a gallon of water then spraying your tomato foliage with it? It works like a charm with tomatoes and peppers. I have tomatoes and peppers dripping off of plants this year. I swear by it! It prevents end rot, makes the blossoms set to fruit, & strengthens the plant. You spray the whole plant, not just the blossoms. Supposedly, it's the magnesium that does the trick.SuperChemicalGirl said:Yes! What is with that? I have little pumpkins that continue to fall off on the majority of my vines... I have probably 14 or 15 vines and only 4 pumpkins.bearmanz400 said:I plan on winning the longest vine with the biggest flowers and no sight of a pumpkin
Same thing is happening to my tomato and squash plants, too... the flowers just dry up and fall off the plant.
