Why Garlic is a must to grow in your garden?

Updated: 6 days ago

The benefits of garlic are nearly endless, and the list of garlic plant uses is nearly as long.



  • First but very important reason is that Garlic is one of the easiest plants you can grow because he seems to thrive on neglect. So if you don't have much time to spend in your garden, Garlic is your jam! You just plant the cloves in the soil, cover them with straw or grass clippings, then sit back and wait for spring.


  • Garlic plant uses included a nearly endless list of health benefits. Garlic has more allicin, a compound that makes garlic so healthy, along with plenty of antibacterial, anti-oxidant, and anti-fungal properties. Garlic may help you fend off a variety of common ailments, from the common cold to high blood pressure, tick bites, ringworm, and athlete’s foot.


  • Garlic in your garden will discourage deer, rabbits, mice, rats, moles, and voles, and some people claim garlic is a terrific snake repellent.


  • Growing garlic costs nearly nothing. If you use a lot of garlic, you’ll save a few dollars here, and probably even more in the long run. Every clove you plant produces several times the amount of garlic you started with. Additionally, you can save your best garlic bulbs for planting later.


  • many gardener will say that you should plant in fall and harvested in early summer, but I think that it is not completely correct.. You have a wide window for planting. You can plant anywhere from August through November– even into December if the weather is mild. There’s not much to do in the garden in autumn, so it’s nice to be able to plant garlic. It will use garden space at a time it would normally go unused. You can plant a different crop, such as beans or squash, after you harvest the garlic next year.


  • You can have garlic on hand for months without having to can or freeze it. You can’t do that with tomatoes!
