Product Description

Musselburgh leek seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Very hardy, versatile and reliable, especially in colder regions. Thick stemmed, broad flags.

Useful Information: Vitamin C; Iron; Folate.

Sow and Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly March-April, in a seed bed, 1.5 cm (1/2-inch) 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, 15 cm (6-inch) apart, into 15 cm (6-inch) deep holes made with a dibber. Allow 30 cm (1 feet) between rows. Water seedlings, but do not fill holes with soil. Or sow indoors, January-February, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5 cm (2-inch) 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.

Hints and Tips: Apply high nitrogen fertiliser to your leek bed, just prior to planting them out in summer, to help them through a long growing season.

Care and Cultivation: As plants grow, draw up soil around them to improve length of blanch (white stem).
