Somerset, United Kingdom
I have just taken on an allotment. It is in fairly good nick but I am told that the previous tenant had to scrap the whole crop of onions, garlic and leeks last year as they were infested with a white worm type thing. How best should i prepare the ground to try and minimise the risk of this happening again this year? Thanks in anticipation!!! Update: I've just been searching through the other questions and forums and the grub was the leek moth by the sounds of it. Would pellets of chicken manure be OK to fertilize the rest of the plot, I think I'm too late for manuring it?
