- Hardy, quality leeks.
- First class strain to eat and to exhibit. Thick, sturdy white stems will hold in excellent condition all winter until ready to harvest.
- A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
- Recommended by Charles Dowding in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition): “Grows long, pale shanks, even without earthing up. It is always one of my highest-yielding varieties tastes good and withstands moderate, but not severe frost.”
Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly March-April, in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-cultivated, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant, 15cm (6") apart, into 15cm (6") deep holes made with a dibber. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Water seedlings, but do not fill holes with soil. Or sow indoors, January-February, 0.5cm (¼") deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays, when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts) before planting out, May-July, into well-cultivated, fertile soil. Harvest: October-March.
