Plant Garlic For Cabbage Protection

 

 

Garlic and tomato plants protect cabbage from serious garden pests.

Fall is the time to plant garlic so if planning on planting cabbage next year, plant garlic now around cabbage beds.

According to studies at Mariano Marcos State University in Ilocos Norte, Phillipines, garlic and tomato are great plants to use as companion plants for cabbage.

Tomato plants protect cabbage plants from Hellula and Diamondback Moth while the garlic plants protect cabbage from cutworms.
