hello, I have a raised bed with loose soil and compost, I have recently planted onion sets and transplanted leeks bought from the garden store, I have noticed that around once every day or so a new leek or onion has fallen over and is extremely "rubbery" and seems to have been snapped off the root at soil level. I am not sure why my leeks are doing this as they have never done this before.

They need more water because when they go limp it's a sign of low water pressure in the plant. Leeks and onions need a lot of water to thrive and will stop growing and fall over when left dry.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
