Now let’s talk garlic! Usually planting season is between August and September. Using mycorrhizae while you plant garlic can lead to a bounty full of healthier and bigger cloves. Mycorrhizae is a mutualistic association between a fungus and the roots, forming a beneficial relationship for both organisms. Mycorrhizae also enhances the plants ability to absorb water and nutrients from the surrounding soil while increasing the plants ability to protect itself from pathogens and diseases. Applying MYKOS at the time of planting, will allow your garlic bulbs to absorb the required nutrients to grow tastier and healthier. It’s time to roll up your sleeves, enjoy some delicious garlic ice cream and let’s get planting!
