There are so many Cinnamon Uses in the kitchen but did you know it is so useful in the garden that it can transform your garden into a lush and healthy place.

Several fungal and other diseases could cause your seedlings to die. Dust your soil with cinnamon powder to safeguard your seedlings from various diseases.

Heal Plant’s Wounds
Cinnamon is great for the plants suffering from wounds. Dust cinnamon on the wound to help promote fast healing by sprinkling cinnamon dust onto the plant’s wound.
Tired of pulling wild mushrooms from your garden? Call cinnamon to the rescue! Sprinkle cinnamon around the places where those mushrooms pop up. It will definitely keep them in check.
Keep mosquitoes away from the garden
Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon around your plants to keep mosquitoes and other bugs away. They don’t like the strong smell of cinnamon, so you can enjoy your garden (even at night) in peace. Alternatively, you can plant a teabag.
Cinnamon as rooting agent
Cinnamon used as rooting agents is as effective as willow water, or hormone rooting powder. Just apply to the stem when you plant the cutting, and it will stimulate root growth in almost every plant you choose. If you want to give your cuttings a quick start with cinnamon, pour a spoon of cinnamon powder into a small paper towel and roll damp stem ends in the cinnamon. Then, plant the stems in fresh potting soil. What cinnamon will do, is encourage the stem to produce more stems, at the same time helping prevent the fungus that causes damping-off disease.
