Full Description

It is important to fumigate a greenhouse to clear out any pests before the winter or that may be over-wintering i.e. red spider mite, whitefly and aphids. Clear your greenhouse of these unwanted pests at ANY time of year by fumigating with a Garlic Greenhouse Candle. Sulphur candles have been the traditional way of clearing pests, but now you can replace these nasty sulphur candles with a chemical-free Garlic Candle.

Garlic Greenhouse Candles as recommended by Adam Pascoe in the Gardeners World magazine“Take this opportunity to clean the glass & framework & fumigate to get rid of any pests & fungal spores. Try a Garlic Candle from Green Gardener, which produces smoke that gets into all the nooks & crannies. Use 2 candles per greenhouse. Seal the windows and doors, so the smoke does not escape.”

Garlic Greenhouse Candles are used in the same way as a sulphur candle i.e. simply place in your greenhouse, light the fuse and leave overnight. HOWEVER, unlike sulphur candles you do NOT need to remove the plants before using the Garlic Candle and they are safe to use in aluminium greenhouses and polytunnels. Garlic Greenhouse Smokes do not leave any smell or visible deposits in the greenhouse and they will not taint any fruit and / or vegetables. Garlic Greenhouse Smoke – Each candle is sufficient to treat approximately 20 cubic metres (equivalent to a 3m x 2m greenhouse). How do I use them :-

  • Water all the plants in the greenhouse in the morning.
  • Ensure that all doors, windows etc of the greenhouse are firmly closed.
  • Place the Garlic Smoke on a brick or in a metal container in the middle of the greenhouse and light the paper wick.
  • Close the door and leave overnight.
  • After at least 12 hours, open the greenhouse and ventilate well.

    I have just used the garlic candle for my greenhouse and so far so good. I was kept up to date about my order and when and how it was dispatched.

    Great products. Have been using nematodes to control slugs and snails for many years now. Works wonders. The garlic bombs are great for the greenhouse and I find buying in bulk from green gardener cost effective.

    I found this company had a good range of products for dealing with my constant enemy, the vine weevil. There as also a topping to use to help prevent the adult laying eggs in the pot. I purchased the vine weevil nematodes to all my pots, some of which I knew had an infestation and applied the topping. The prices were very competitive and the products arrived quickly. I also bought the candles to fumigate the greenhouses and these seemed to have been effective.
