- Sow into a seedbed March-May. When they are pencil thick, transplant into final positions, spacing 15cm apart and 15cm deep. Start earlier under cover for earlier crops and plant closer for slimmer leeks.
An autumn to early winter variety with dark green leaves and the longest, super straight, white stems. This is ideal for growing closely packed as a mini leek, or left to reach full size.
Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
When planting seedlings into final position, insert each plant into a hole 15cm deep made with a dibber and water it in. That's what makes the base of the leek white.
