Rusty leek seedlings??!!
« on: July 03, 2008, 19:27 »
I have some leek seedlings under my Munty frame but they are looking a bit rusty.  :shock:

I have dug some early spuds but am wondering whether it is wise to transplant the leek seedlings if they are showing signs of rust. I assume it must have been a bit crowded where they are at present. Any thoughts welcomed!!

Cheers HH
Keep digging

A bit early to have rust on them for good development, but they might surprise you. If don't trust them, sow another lot quickly.

Thanks Gobs given the lack of screams of horror from the board I am going to risk it and see how they get on. :)

I've got rust on perpetual onions, should I dig them up? So far I just pulled off all the rusty bits.

Do you mean Welsh onions, chives or main crop? :?

That's only because

a) everybody is busy in the garden

b) everybody thinks I'm full of disease :lol:  :lol:
