Hi all,

Won't have a pic until tomorrow.
Shoots on some of my shallots have gone flat with bubbles on them.
For want of a better description, they look like long pea pods. All still somewhat upright, but not as full and conical(?) as the others.

Anyone understand me and or know what the prob is? Thanks!

If the foliage develops orange pustules the crop may be affected by rust leek rust.
The Infection is worse on nitrogen-rich soils with low potassium,
Do not crowd plants, as this raises humidity and increases the likelihood of infection
Dispose of all plant debris at the end of cropping
Suppliers sometimes claim that certain varieties are resistant but , check before purchase. There are no chemicals approved for control of leek rust for gardeners.
