Cinnamon uses in the garden

I had a nice visit with my gardening genius parents yesterday. My dad mentioned that the few flowers he’d started were starting to “damp off”. So he suggested cinnamon in the water to prevent that.

Cinnamon is also apparently a good rooting hormone and pesticide too.


The suggestion to use on cuttings is interesting:

Give your cuttings a quick start with the help of cinnamon powder. Pour a spoonful onto a paper towel and roll damp stem ends in the cinnamon. Plant the stems in fresh potting soil. The cinnamon will encourage the stem to produce more stems, while helping to prevent the fungus that causes damping-off disease.

I’ve heard of people using honey as well with great success. Giving rooting hormones companies a run for their money? Going to start shopping for grow supplies at the grocery store lol!
