All of my leek plants have died off,with some sort of fungal problem I think.What is the cause please ? and how to prevent this another year ?I used a dibber to plant them and watered them in regularly.Two separate plantings well away from each other but all with the same disappointing results.



Probably rotted AFTER leek moth caterpilar damage (look it up, loads on Google). Next year a preventative spray might be needed. Phil J
