I just found these tips in a garden magazine & I thought I would share them. Some of them I have heard & or used before, but a couple were brand new to me.

Help with Damping-Off...

Soak your seeds in a small amount of water and a clove of crushed garlic to prevent damping-off.

Cinnamon acts as a fungicide & prevents damping-off, may be shaken on top of soil or mixed in to potting mix.

Mist your plants with Chamomile tea as a preventative measure to guard against damping-off.

Spread sphagnum moss in a thin layer on the surface of your soil to prevent damping-off.

Fireplace ash on the top of your seedling soil prevents damping-off.
