12 Best Plants To Grow Alongside Garlic

Garlic is such a powerful plant! A pretty pot of garlic placed inside the house (on coffee table, at working desk,..) can help repel mosquitoes and flies. Garlic cloves are an “essential” ingredient for daily foods. They not only makes the food more fragrant but also add nutritional values to them. Then, it’s regret that you do not grow garlic at home.
