Alliums - stalks stripped & head nipped off
Cheshire, United Kingdom
This morning I discovered two allium stalks with their outer dark green covering peeled off, revealing light green beneath. One of the just opening flowerheads had been snipped off, as if by scissors, about an inch below the flower itself and was lying on the soil beside it. Any ideas please? The leaves have been badly munched by snails/slugs already despite applying deterrents. I live in Cheshire and it is and has been very wet over the last few weeks. This is my first attempt at gowing alliums and this is so disappointing after an excellent start.
