Many thanks for your answer, I will leave them, and see what happens. Fortunately, we do not have deer, as there is a low voltage electric perimeter fence, high enogh to keep them out, but somebody has suggested that it may be rabbits, which seem to have got in under the fence, and set up home. Our site has only been open for three years (this is our fourth growing season, and each year more pests have 'found' us. Year one was brilliant, with everything we grew being perfect, but we have increasing problems, with carrot root fly, cabbage butterflies, pigeons, mice, moles, and now rabbits. On top of last year's weather disaster, it makes you wonder if all the effort is worth it.

I planted 4 rows of onion sets last October. They started growing normally before the cold weather set in, and stayed dormant over the Winter,as usual. I have just been down to my allotment to find the very tops of all the shoots have been eaten, I assume by pigeons, as the lower part of the shoots are intact. Will the onions still grow, or will they die ?
