Growing Onion

View the Onion page

27 Mar 24 Peter (Australia - temperate climate)
Last year I had quite a few of my small Onions and Parsley cut off at the base. I suspect the culprit is a Blue Tongue Lizard, i have noticed full grown and baby Blue Tongues in the garden. While I dont want to hurt the Blue tongues, I want my crop to grow. I saw somewhere that Lizards dislike Vinegar. I am going to spray a row of Onions with Vinegar and see if this keeps the Beasties away. Has anyone tried this, or any similar way to deter Blue Tongues. Cheers. Pete.
