  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, neutral to slightly acidic sandy loam

    An extremely hardy leek which will put up with blistering gales and frost without a pause. The solid, long white stems are exhibition quality with an outstanding flavour: dig them up young and tender early in the season, or leave them to bulk up as they'll stand well in the ground for you to harvest as you need them.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow direct into shallow drills in a well-prepared seedbed in spring, and thin seedlings to 1cm apart. When seedlings are about pencil thickness, transplant to their final growing place, leaving 15cm between plants. For the longest white stems, dib a hole for each plant 15cm deep and drop the seedling in before filling the hole with water. Leeks can be dug up and 'heeled in', covered in loose soil in a trench in a sheltered spot for easy access in winter.

  • Sow: March-April

  • Harvest: October-January

  • Approximate quantity: 350 seeds.
