Garlic is used to divert zombies to other lanes than the one they are in. A zombie will bite a Garlic, make a yucky face and then randomly move either up or down one lane. A Garlic can take 21 bites.
Garlic is a great way to move zombies to other lanes that have stronger defenses set up already. Zombonis, Catapult Zombies, Bungee Zombies and Gargantuars don’t actually eat plants, so they will not be affected by Garlic. A way to slow zombies down is by placing a row of Garlic together. The zombies will eventually get through, but not before taking several bites and moving up and down the lanes.
