In this video guide, Monty Don shows you how to identify the symptoms of onion white rot and avoid it recurring in future years. As he harvests his infected shallots, Monty suggests many other crops that you can plant in their place now, which will not be affected by this fungal disease. And if you spot white rot on your own onions or shallots, the good news is that most of the bulbs will still be edible.
