This is the second year of my trialling of this method of combatting white rot in alliums, and another resounding success for the method.
Previously, I used to loose about 30% of my allium crops to white rot. I have just lifted the last of my alliums this year and only one garlic head showed any sign of white rot.
There is still time this year for you to treat the beds that you intend to use for growing alliums next year, with ground up garlic cloves.
For the method, see this page http://www.growyourown.info/page173.html
Has anybody else been trialling this method and what results did you get?
Has the RHS done any trials using this method?
