A variety with thick heavy stems – harvested from January onwards. This is a leek of outstanding flavour which will sit even through the bleakest of winter weather, providing you with a delicious ingredient to add to your wholesome winter stews and soups. Eating large amounts of leeks is one of the things that makes the winter months bearable and we are always sad when they come to an end in spring.

When to sow: March – April

Spacing: 15 x 30cm

Leek tips: Seedbed method: Sow seed 1cm deep in 10cm wide drills, around 2-300 seeds per metre. When the plants are pencil-thickness, dig them up, trim the roots back to 3cm, and the stems to 2/3 of their original length. Dib holes 15-20cm deep and drop one leek into each hole. Leave the hole open to give the plants room to grow, except in dry spells when the holes should be filled to keep roots from drying out.
