Hi Vernon and Steve 309
I have sown Mammoth Onion seeds and Mammoth Pot Leeks from seed, and noticed holes appearing on the leaves on my Red Barron Onions sown in the Autumn just like in Daisyheadcase pictures, could that be a sign of Onion Fly?
I had Onion Fly last autumn which saw off the last of the leek crop and disinfected the soil with a warm solution of Jeyes Fluid in this spring
The Mammoth Onions and Mammoth Pot Leeks were planted out about 3 weeks ago in a different plot to those grown last year.
If the holes aren't made by the Onion Fly would you please be so kind as to advise what would make the holes and does it affect the onion?
Many thanks in anticipation.
