Soak 3 to 4 ounces of chopped garlic bulbs in 2 tablespoons of mineral oil for one day. Dissolve 1 tsp of fish emulsion in a pint of water and add it to your solution. Stir. Strain liquid and store in a glass container - not metal! Dilute 1 part solution to every 20 parts of water. Kills aphids, mosquitoes, and onion flies.

I have not grown any garlic...I noticed you had some it difficult to grow?


No .... Think "onion" . But where you are . ..... You may plant it in Dec. , and harvest it in March. Check the locals for advice. Garlic is cool.
