Hi.

This is my first time trying to grow onions and garlic.

I planted the garlic and onion before winter and they are about 5 months old now.

About 1 month ago I started noticing Aphids on some of them and tried to simply spray them off. This didn't work so I tried some soapy water which also didn't work. I got an organic based insect spray(garlic and chilli) and this killed off all the aphids.

However they planters have started looking very poor.

Cany anyone offer me any advice to how to recover these plants?

Stephen.

Your softneck garlic looks OK to me.
I don't know enough about growing onions in Australia, so perhaps you could help me with some information.
1) What is the minimum usual temperature where you are & when is it frosty, if at all?
2) What variety of onions have you grown & do you know what type of onions to grow there. I noticed that you planted them at the onset of winter.

It is far from certain that you have done anything wrong, but now that it's getting warm there, I'd be watering these planters twice a week.

1. Min Temperature is 6c (42.8f) and it doesn't really frost but the last frost is early august.
2. the varieties are Yellow Spanish & Californian Red.

Yes I planted them about a month before winter started (may 2022) from seedlings I germinated a month before inside the house.
