Growing Tips

Leeks

They need a well manured site to crop well. Sow in seed boxes under glass February to March or outdoors in April. Plant out 9" apart in 6" deep dibber holes, 15" between rows. Do not fill holes, watering will do this. Liquid feed once a fortnight, keep weed free and earth up as they grow to get long white stems. Cardboard collars or pipes will do as well.
 

Kitchen Tips: Try leek, potato and ham bone soup.

Pests: Onion Fly, Leek Moth.
