Leek - Allium porrum

Growing instructions

Leeks can be grown from seed in soil that has been improved with compost or well-rotted manure. Seeds are sown thinly, 1cm deep in rows 15 cm apart, from February to April for harvesting from August. Alternatively, plant seeds in a seed tray (which can be left outdoors) and plant out seedlings from May. Mature leeks can be left in the ground and lifted as needed.
