I’m a gardening expert – my kitchen must-have will revitalize your plants and keep ants away

Keeping plants alive and healthy can be a daunting task, especially for those of us who chose to become plant parents rather than adopt a furry friend because we thought it would be easy.

From day-to-day care to controlling pests of all kinds, plant care can feel like a full-time job.

Feather in the Woods recommends using this one ingredient for all of your planting needs

The experts at Feathers in the Woods have discovered a cure-all for most of these problems in an ingredient found in most kitchens.

While you might associate cinnamon with the holiday season or your favorite coffee, the spice can also be used to nurture plants.

From the start, cinnamon can be used to prevent diseases affecting your seedlings.

Cinnamon has antifungal properties, so dusting your freshly planted seeds with this spice will help ward off both rot and those pesky fungus gnats that tend to approach your new garden projects.

This antifungal property also prevents the growth of wild mushrooms in your garden.

Sprinkle cinnamon on your flower beds every now and then, experts say, and they won’t just smell like Christmas.

Cinnamon can also help root your cuttings and save you money on store-bought chemical rooting hormones.

That may sound made up, but it’s sober for us: cinnamon has healing properties.

If you get a little carried away with trimming or weed killing and your plants need a little care, cinnamon is your answer.

According to Feathers in the Woods, sprinkling a small amount of cinnamon on your plant’s wounds will promote healing and also prevent fungal infections.

Cinnamon can be used on houseplants to prevent any mold or mildew growth.

And if those aren’t enough reasons to expand the use of cinnamon beyond your kitchen, it’s a natural repellent for pests from everything from ants to moles.

Scattering a line of cinnamon along the path to your flower beds and even your home will discourage insects, as well as furry rodents like rabbits and squirrels, from venturing further.

It’s a cruelty-free deterrent and will also leave your garden chemical-free.

Much like these creatures hate the scent, flying insects dislike cinnamon.

You can use cinnamon sticks, powder, or oil to repel these pesky pests.

Cinnamon is also reported to help prevent plant rust, but according to the experts at Feathers in the Woods, the jury is still out.
