£2.99
1
Suttons Seeds approved retailer A vigorous, easy-to-grow, quick-maturing variety, developed to produce a good length of bulbous white stem, for harvesting in autumn and winter. Can also be used when young as salad leeks, which we think are preferable to spring onions! Excellent eaten with seafood. Growing Information Sow thinly direct into a finely raked seedbed at a depth of 1.3cm (½") in rows 30cm (12") apart. Germination 14-18 days. When ready to transplant make holes with a dibber 10-15cm (4-6") deep, 23cm (9") apart, drop a plant into each and fill with water to settle soil around the roots. Allow 38cm (15") between rows. To blanch, draw up earth to stems as growth develops. Leeks do well on most soils especially if well prepared. Sowing - Cropping: 35-40 weeks.
