Q.Garlic Capsules

Would I be able to place garlic capsules in some of my plant pots? In the summer snails eat my hosta plants. I understand garlic would be a deterrent?

Kind Regards

The best thing would be to mix the capsule into warm water and either water or spray the plant with it. It does make a good deterrent, but while you are at it, you might even put a little rosemary oil in with it. This combination will stop most pests from eating your plants.This link will take you to a collection of articles that will give you good ideas on making your own pest control, among other useful gardening tips: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/
