5. Why Garlic?
Garlic is one of those vegetables that everyone can grow and that everyone should grow - it is so healthy and crammed with vital minerals and it seems crazy to suggest that a clove of garlic swallowed whole a day will help keep the doctor away ... sorry apples!

9. Ornamental Avocado Containers
I came across a row of container trees in someone’s garden the other day that were really cute but what were they? They had a lush tropical look, clean, thick stems (rather than fat trunks) and thick glossy wide ovate leaves that left the surrounding garden bed dappled. I just had to find out more!

Just add organic garlic to your diet and your health will improve. All sorts of diseases and poor living lifestyles can be mended. That’s the promise Nature makes when you take advantage of this amazing vegetable ... or is it an herb? Whatever - grow some soon and you won’t look back!
