Today I thought it was time we talked about garlic! Garlic (Allium sativum) can be used in lots of different ways in the garden. Garlic is well known to have antimicrobial properties, but did you know it can inhibit certain fungus too? From chasing off herbivores to curing fungus, garlic is very versatile and of course…organic.
Garlic isn’t expensive at all, especially when compared to commercial fungicides and pesticides. I can usually find a 3 pack for around $1 at the grocery store. It might cost you a little more for organic garlic, but it shouldn’t be much of a difference. Plus, a little goes a long way! I’m still working on the pack I bought in spring.
