Description

One of our greatest revelatory plant combinations of last spring, a purple leek growing with different coloured tulips and picked to arrange with them too. We absolutely loved this edible and hugely ornamental pairing.

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.
