Allium leaf miner
« on: November 07, 2017, 13:49 »
I have just completed my first year of my allotment, with varying success. My biggest failure,( ant that of the whole allotment), was the complete wipe-out of the leeks. They all looked ok but when we prepared them, they were full of brown critters,resembling a brown grain of rice. I found on the RHS site that it is the Allium leaf miner, a fly that first appeared in 2002 ,and has swept most of England and Wales "hobby gardeners and allotments". Has anyone else had this problem and is it worth trying again next year ?

Welcome to the forums.

As you have a specific question relating to GYO, I'll move this post there. In the meantime you might want to have a look at this thread:

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!
