Growing Garlic at Home

Growing Garlic at Home

I love the taste and aroma of garlic. Nothing else sets your mouth to watering than the smell in your kitchen when garlic is cooking.  Not only does it taste and smell fantastic, it has a lot of health benefits too. Garlic is thought to have effective anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties, as well as helping to lower blood pressure, bad cholesterol and regulate blood sugar. It has been used to prevent cancer, treat skin infections, relieve toothaches, reduce plaque in the arteries, improve metabolism and boost your immune system.

Ask any seasoned vegetable gardener what is the most important aspect to getting a good yield out of a raised bed vegetable garden and they will tell you it’s “all in the soil you use”.
