Why you need to use it
- It repels ants: Have you got ants in your garden and do you want to get rid of them? Sprinkle some cinnamon on a spot that’s popular with the ants. The powdery substance can cause the ants to choke when they breathe it in. Plus, the smell makes it impossible for them to smell any food. And the nice thing about cinnamon? It isn’t harmful to children or animals.
- It kills mushrooms: Mushrooms don’t stand a chance if you sprinkle some of the ground spice on the soil in your garden. The cinnamon will combat the mushrooms that are still close to the ground. That’s because the spice has antifungal properties which will stop the mushrooms from growing.
- It protects seedlings against diseases: Seasoned gardeners will know that growing new plants out of seeds doesn’t always go the way you want it to. Luckily, cinnamon can help you out. Like we mentioned, it has antifungal properties. This helps the seedlings to keep growing without becoming sick!
- It keeps mosquitos out of your garden: Sprinkle some cinnamon around your plants and you’ll see that mosquitos will stop coming anywhere near them. Mosquitos, but other insects as well, absolutely hate the spice. The smell is much too strong for them, which will cause them to stay away from your garden.
- It heals sick plants: Have you been a bit clumsy and have you damaged one of your plants? Is there a tear in a leaf or stalk? You can speed up the healing process by applying some cinnamon to the plant.
- It makes roses sturdier: Have you cut some fresh roses out of your garden to replant them somewhere else? Dip them into some cinnamon before replanting them. The spice will kind of work like a rooting hormone.
