Cinnamon is delicious and also great for one’s overall health but did you know that they can also benefit plants as well? Cinnamon can help indoor and outdoor plants and keep them healthy for a longer period. Here are six ways you can use cinnamon in your garden:

1-Seedlings

Imagine little sea turtles tucked away in their little sandy womb, breaking their little shells, climbing to the harsh surface, and running to the ocean for shelter. We’ve all seen the documentaries. The little turtles run, the predators enjoy a baby turtle sandwich. It’s the circle of life. But what if I told you that the same thing can happen to your little seedlings?

The might not be any birds trying to go after your plants but there are diseases that can affect them. The gardening term Dampening off cover a great amount of diseases that go after developing seeds. Dampening off can occur from different kinds of fungi that in the soil. Cinnamon is able to eliminate this fungus. Sprinkling a little cinnamon on fresh soil can prevent dampening from occurring.

2-Wild Mushrooms

As mentioned earlier with my little sea turtle analogy, mushrooms don’t like cinnamon. Instead of spending a spring afternoon picking annoying wild mushrooms from your garden, give them a little cinnamon dusting and watch them disappear!

3-Rooting Hormone

Rooting hormone stimulates the roots growing process. If you can get rid of any chemicals in your house.  Don’t buy any chemical rooting hormones; instead add a little cinnamon to the stem when you plant the cutting.

4-Ant Deterrent

We love cinnamon. Ants do not. Sprinkle cinnamon around your garden beds to kill the ants, and keep them away. Ants in the house? Sprinkle some cinnamon near your entrances and watch the ants flee!

5-Plant Wounds

Have you ever accidently cut your plant or wound it by it falling over? Instead of getting frustrated sprinkle a little cinnamon on the area that’s damage to prevent it from infecting.

6-House Plants

Don’t forget about your indoor plants while pruning your outdoor ones. Cinnamon helps gets rid of mold and mildew in your plants. Sprinkle some cinnamon on the soil, and watch your plants flourish. Gnat problem? Not a problem. Cinnamon gets rid of gnats in seedlings and houseplants and keeps them away.

Cinnamon is all natural and  an effective way to keep your plants growing healthy. Get rid of all those harsh chemicals and bring in the cinnamon.
