Do roses really love garlic?

There's no scientific evidence that roses love garlic, but many gardeners swear by "companion planting" as a method of repelling insect pests. The key to finding good companions is that both plants must have the same cultural needs, and that neither plant should be especially susceptible to a disease or insect that will affect the other. Roses and garlic fall under the category of having the same cultural needs.

Hope this information helps!
