A Scottish Heirloom variety introduced in 1834, remaining one of the most popular and hardy varieties available today. A late variety which stands deep into winter and produces large, very thick stems with an excellent mild flavour.  Grows well in most locations.   Days To Germination: 14 to 18 days

Optimum Soil Temp. for Germination: 60 to 80F

Days To Harvest: 130 days

Planting Depth: 1/2inch

Spacing, Row:   24 inches

Light: Sunny Location Leek is extremely hardy, forgiving and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked.  Sow sparingly directly in drills in early-mid spring, the aim to produce pencil thick plants of around 8” tall for transplant to their final position. Can be planted in trays under cover and transplanted for an earlier crop. When pencil size (around Jun/Jul) lift carefully and remove the top third of the foliage and 1/3 of the roots. Transplant in pre-made holes of 4-6 inches deep, 8 inches between plants in a sunny position with rotted organic matter incorporated.  If space is limited this can be reduced, provided you pull alternative plants when young to make space for the remainder to grow. When transplanting carefully poor water into the hole to wash soil around the roots, then leave and earth up as they grow to blanche the stems. (Do not get soil between the leaves). Harvest alternate plants when large enough for use.

Germination notes IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - Please note seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, and type of soil, watering, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media.

Although we do everything possible to get seeds to you in the best possible condition and will provide as much help as possible, these factors are totally outside of our control and once you receive the seeds its over to you. Consequently, we can take no responsibility for the suitability to your local conditions of any variety offered, the indicative cultivation advice provided or ultimately the varieties performance. As such you should seek local advice to carefully ensure your local conditions and the time of season are appropriate to the variety purchased.
