  1. Have you tried this; do you know anyone who has? Perhaps your tip might be better written as a myth, rather than as a definite cure. Possibly it may work, but where’s the proof please?

    Many gardeners waste a lot of time following old seemingly useful ideas, when in fact they are just hearsay passed down again and again.

      Many of our customers have tried this and were very impressed by the results, you can see the most recent comments on our Facebook page. This is a tried and true tip from Wendyl’s most popular book. I have updated the post to reflect this 🙂 Thanks for your concern.

  2. This totally works. I put the onion peels out a week ago and just about all the black spot has gone already. Amazing, I wonder if I could just chop up actual onions?
