Yes, foliar spray of Epsom salts. I haven't done it yet, but know a farmer
who swears by it for his peppers.

Beth,

 

Do you mean a foliar spray of Epson salts?

Have you had your soil tested? Many organic farmers think that there should
be about 10 times as much calcium as magnesium, and that excess magnesium
makes soil "hard". Foliar application seems to avoid this.
