What eats onion sets?

Cheers, thought as much. I'm pretty sure it's rats as I've also seen them running about on abandoned plots.

We've decided to start off some more but unless we put some poison down they'll have to be netted to within an inch of their lives.

What eats onion sets?

Posted: 28/03/2013 at 16:13
Last autumn I planted about 150 red and white onions that I'd started off in modules indoors at my allotment. After a few weeks I realised the birds were amusing themselves by pulling them up, so we fleeced them for winter. When we took the fleece off there were only about 10 onions left, looking decidedly munched rather than nibbled, am I right in concluding that they've probably been had by rodents? I don't think it's anything slimier because of the time of year. Shallots and garlic planted in the same bed are doing perfectly fine.

They do look like lovely healthy plants, we just need some warmth now for you to get them out.

I'm holding off too. Wanted to get them in on Good Friday (as tradition states) but it's just not warm enough at the moment.

I'm looking forward to being able to get to the allotment after work, and I'm very sure it's going to be warm
