Problem With Your Plant Gaden? A Sprinkle Of Cinnamon Could Help

If you've ever had a plant garden, you know just how finicky it can be. You start off thinking, "Ok, I'll put some seeds in some dirt, water it now and then and I'll have awesome plants," because how hard could it be, right? Then you realize that you have to water the plants just right, make sure they get sunlight, prune or support them if necessary, and watch out for pests on top of everything. What started off as a relaxing hobby has now got you all worked up.

When a plant develops a fungus (usually due to excessive moisture), it's best to act quickly before the rot really sets in. While most of us would probably head over to the nearest store to get some kind of chemical fungicide, that's far from the best option. I've been getting into a lot of natural remedies lately and I'm finding out more and more that whatever nature creates, nature also has a way to kill. This goes for pretty much any plant, pest, or fungus.

Instead of shelling out your money on some nasty, potentially poisonous fungicide, why not head over to your kitchen cabinet? Cinnamon is a natural fungicide that most of us have in our homes. It's been used for centuries not just because it tastes so dang good, but also because it has a lot of medicinal properties. If you notice your young seedlings starting to develop a white, fuzzy, mold-like substance, just sprinkle some cinnamon (a pinch will do) and watch it go to work protecting your garden.
