An excellent long-standing leek with incredible cold tolerance and rust resistance. An ideal variety for anyone growing in exposed areas or northern climates. Sow leek seed more densely in either the garden or a patio container and use the thinnings for ‘baby’ leeks – they’re delicious and extend your cropping season!
