Description

A whopping, handsome leek, a tried and tested traditional variety that is reliable, easy to grow, with good disease resistance and an excellent strong flavour.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

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.
