Last week I planted out some spring onion seedlings and within a few days something appears to be eating them from the top down. It almost appears as though they have been cut with a knife or scissors. Anyone help?

Sounds like earwigs. Had the same problem with capsicum and cucumber seelings. Look around for sprays to "control" them , mainly with garlic in them. They hate garlic.
