In this article, we will be discussing Garlic Wonder Organic Concentrate to see if it is effective in the container garden.
Garlic is not only good for the heart it seems but is also good for your garden. It not only repels vampires but also repels bad insects from your container garden.
You may be surprised to know that garlic makes an effective insecticide, an effective foliar feed and organic fungicide in gardening.
We are all starting to become more aware of our wildlife that reside and live in our gardens. We know the effect that insecticides have on this wildlife which can be detrimental. Gardeners are looking to organic methods in order to stop infestations, whilst not harming beneficial insects. This is where garlic comes into play, as this bulb has various uses in the garden.
Garlic contains a vast array of sulfur-containing compounds that have multiple uses in the garden. It is not only an effective insecticide, it also an effective fungicide and is a natural deterrent.
When garlic concentrate is diluted to the right concentration, it can be used and applied to vegetables, fruits, perennials, annuals, shrubs, trees, and indoor plants.
WHAT IS GARLIC WONDER ORGANIC CONCENTRATE?
This is a very effective spray for growing plants with. It leaves no residue and eliminates the need for harsh chemicals to be used.
The main ingredient of the concentrate is the garlic bulb, which can be used as foliar or root feed on all garden plants mentioned above.
Garlic Wonder contains high amounts of sulfur and selenium, which can stimulate growth, encourage resistance to fungal infections and strengthens the plant after fungal, pests and viral attacks.
If it is used in the correct manner and if the written instructions are followed to the tee, then Garlic Wonder would be sure to care for wildlife and protect the environment.
It should not harm beneficial insects or other animals from earthworms, bees, ladybirds, and lacewings.
When using the garlic in spray form, you will need to dilute it to the stated concentration level, where it can be used as:
AS A NATURAL PESTICIDE/INSECTICIDES
When you spray a plant directly on it leaves with garlic spray, it will be effective at treating aphids, some beetles, caterpillars, spider mites, whiteflies, ants and moths. It can also be used as a compost treatment for snail and slugs, fungus gnats, and nematodes.
AS A NATURAL FUNGICIDE
The sulfur-containing compounds will treat a variety of fungal and mildew diseases. It is very effective in treating powdery mildew.
AS A NATURAL DETERRENT
When garlic sprays are mixed with chillis. It can be used as a deterrent for mice, rats, rabbits, and dear. To do this mix one tablespoon of cayenne pepper with the recommended amount of dilute garlic mixture before spraying the plants.
AS A FOLIAR FEED
Sulfur and selenium are trace elements that can give plants a boost. Sulfur in plants is an essential nutrient which helps in the formation of enzymes and in plant proteins. It is required in low quantities.
Selenium is another essential trace element in low concentrations, as it is believed to increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes and to increase the tolerance of the plant to stress.
The product can be used inside and outside because it does not have a garlic smell that lingers. It can even be used with no ill effect, up to harvest. This is such a great advantage. It will not leave an unpleasant smell or taste, as the spray becomes odourless within minutes.
HOW TO USE IT AS A SPRAY
All you have to do is dilute the garlic concentrate to the desired concentration and place it in a sprayer bottle. You will then need to shake well ensuring that the garlic concentrate and water are mixed well.
The prepared garlic mixture can then be sprayed in dry conditions, where the leaves, stems, flowers, and fruits can be covered with the mixture.
You will need to start spraying at the beginning of the season, whilst the plant is still young. This has to be repeated every 7-10 days, where it is best to apply the spray late in the afternoon, where bee activity is lower and the plants are more receptive.
When spraying it is best to spray little and often.
- For how many spray bottles this will make, it is relatively cheap.
- Effective in treating insect infestations.
- Effective as an organic fungicide.
- Can promote more vigour and growth in the plant.
- Can act as a natural deterrent.
- Organic chemicals are used and will not kill beneficial insects and will protect the environment.
- No lingering smells. No taste and can be used up to harvesting time of the fruit.
- It may not be totally effective. One disease that garlic plants suffer from is rust, a type of fungal infection. It, therefore, makes sense to induce that garlic will not be effective in treating rust infections.
- Garlic can seriously irritate the eyes, so you need to wear eye protection when using the bottle sprayer. You have to use the spray regularly as clockwork, otherwise, once stop the infection or pest may come back with a vengeance.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE GARLIC WONDER ORGANIC CONCENTRATE?
I have used it for a number of years with great success, I first started using it in my greenhouse, and where the tomatoes I grew started getting botrytis (Grey Mould), which can destroy tomatoes on the vine. I hope that by using the spray I would stop the infection from developing, as the growing season went on. Guess what it worked.
If it worked for me, it most certainly will work for you.
If you follow the instruction exactly, you will reap the reward and your crops will be saved. A product that can treat infestations and fungal diseases, and is organic is a rare beast in gardening. This product fills the brief very well. I must stress it will only work if you use the product regularly as any lapse will be punished.
I recommend this product for those who wish to protect the environment and for any type of gardener. If you want to buy this product, then buy it here.
