Donna,

Epsom salts is magnesium sulphate. The discussion is about manganese, a different
element.

:     I'd guess you were seeing Manganese that had washed down into low areas
: over time, but I am on upland.  I tried adding Epsoms salts the first year
: it happened, no effect.  Later we had a CEC soil test done, and we were low
: on Mn, with 6.4 pH and 3.4 organic matter.
