Egyptian Walking Onions

goodt4me(9)April 6, 2013

Do anyone have any ideas on what is happening to my Egyptian Walking Onions?

Last year I planted Egyptian Walking Onions. They were doing great, showed no signs of distress and all of a sudden just disappeared.

This year in Febuary I planted about 15 bulbs. They quickly sprouted. I just checked and now I only have 3 plants. They are in the middle row surrounded by 2 rows of another type of onion. The other type of onion is not having any problems in that area.

Thanks Marymcp. All the other types of onions in that area are unaffected. But maybe the walking onions have a scent that predators like. I looked at them tonight and tops are turning a yellow brown while all the other onions are doing great. I guess I will have do some research and see what's going on.
