  • Allium leaf miner

    There is approx 80 allotment plots on our site in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear. In the last 3 weeks everyone has lost their Onions, most have lost Garlic etc. Its heartbreaking to see. All the hardwork put in by everyone. We have a few irons in the fire to defeat the pest including mesh.
    Anyone else had problems?

    Luckily no, must be so heart breaking, never had the problem so can offer no solutions.

          So sorry it's spread to your area, we've had it since 2014. The first three years are worse but unfortunately once you have it it sticks around. We now have to grow all alliums under extra fine mesh (eg. Enviromesh Ultrafine).
