Roses Love Garlic
At Amuura Permaculture Garden, we practice companion gardening, it is one big part of permaculture.Companion planting in gardening is the planting of different crops in proximity for pest control,pollination, providing habitat for beneficial creatures, maximizing use of space, and to otherwise increase crop productivity.
Roses are beautiful flowers which will grow practically anywhere if you respect few things. Place first quality bushes in sunny beds-sunny, at least half a day, water an feed regulary and remove spent blossom.
Roses grow even better with the companion of garlic plants as garlic is a fine ground cover,they deter aphids and other pests by confusing them with their strong scent and they also help roses combat black spot.
Here at Amuura , we used that benefit of companion planting, and are now able to enjoy the beautiful smell of healthy roses and the taste of garlic.
