Everything is Better with Garlic

Watch any cooking show on TV and you’re almost certain to see Garlic used in just about every recipe.  Flip over to a Health Channel, and you’re liable to hear a blurb or two about the medicinal properties found in Garlic too.  And we all know that Garlic is a tried and true Vampire Repellent.  But did you know that Garlic can be used as a natural pesticide too?

That’s right, those little cloves that you love to use to spice up your everyday cuisine can also be used to get rid of those pesky little critters in your garden.  You can effectively take on a wide array of bugs ranging from ants, aphids, worms, caterpillars, beetles, moths, mites, even fungi and bacteria.  Remember back in the day when people swore Garlic to be the cure-all?  Well they weren’t kidding!

Our Sales Manager, Leigh Ann, prefers a special blend for her Natural Pesticide when gardening.  If you’re looking for a natural way to get rid of pests in your gardens, we recommend you give her recipe a try.

Ingredients:

3 Quarts Water
1 Large Onion – Chopped
1 Large Head of Garlic – Chopped
2 Teaspoons Cayenne Pepper

Directions:

Toss all Ingredients in a large pot.  Bring Pot to a Boil and allow mixture to boil for at least 10 minutes.  Remove Pot from burner and let sit for approximately 1 Hour.  Strain liquid.  Pour liquid into Spray Bottle.

Spray plants with Natural Pesticide and Re-Apply every 3 to 5 days.

  • It's always disappointing finding a houseplant that you love, but know won't grow in your cozy bedroom. Many interesting plants can be grown indoors but usually ones that bloom, display bright colors, or produce fruit can need a lot of sun. Thankfully, plenty don't.
