See if you can,

keep track of which kinds the birds like the best, I know even from volunteers from bird seed they ate all of one kind, and left another!

I'll have to count how many packets I have now. I even have little dwarf ones that I can plant in containers. I am planting the big ones in the garden just FOR the birds! :-)

Ohoh... I was reading this

Ohoh... I was reading this new book called CARROTS LOVE TOMATOES and in it it says that Roses LOVES Garlic. We ran out to LOWES and I bought some Garlic bulbs to plant around my ROse bushes.
Have you ever tried that?

I grow garlic to sell

Got the hard stem kind that was growing wild in the woods near the house. Heard about planting them around Roses.
Garlic needs to be planted in the fall or very early spring to get to the size to ward off insects..
