This versatile spice can be used to help root cuttings, gardening to prevent fungus from killing small seedlings and even for keeping pests away from your home. Once you learn how to use cinnamon powder for plant health, you’ll think twice about grabbing harsh chemicals for your gardening needs.
Cinnamon advantage in your private garden
1) Wild mushrooms in the gardening. Nothing worse then having to waste a beautiful day pulling mushrooms from the mulch in my flower beds in garden .
2) Rooting hormone. Much cheaper then the chemical stuff they sell in the big box store and just as effective! Just apply cinnamon powder to the stem when you plant the cutting.
3) Ant deterrent. Ants do not like cinnamon! Sprinkle it in your gardening house or around your garden beds. It will not kill the ants, but they will stay away from it. Sprinkle it by your doors if ants are coming into your house gardening .
4) Plant wounds. Overzealous pruning or a slip of the weed whacker and you’ll have a plant with a wound that needs fixed up.
5) House plants gardening . Cinnamon get’s rid of molds and mildew in house plants too. Simply sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on the soil. It will also get rid of gnats if you happen to have them buzzing around your house plants. These are the same gnats seedlings get, the cinnamon destroys the fungus they feed on and they will die.
6) Cinnamon also has some amazing health benefits and best of all, I always find it at the dollar store! If your dollar store doesn’t carry it or you just use a whole lot, you can get 5lbs of it here for $10.99. (cheapest I’ve found it anywhere) .
gardening Take advantage of cinnamon fungicide control by making a cinnamon spray for plants. Stir some cinnamon into warm water and allow it to steep overnight. Strain the liquid through a coffee filter and put the results into a spray bottle. Spray the stems and leave of affected plants, and mist the potting soil in plants that have a mushroom problem.
