Why can't I grow leeks?!
I've been growing my own fruit & veg for 30+ years and have never grown a decent crop of leeks. It must be me, they're not that hard to grow, surely? The leaves buckle up as they're growing (every time!) and I get an infestation of those little brown grub things (every time!). I start them off in small trays, pot them on into individual root-trainers when they're 3" high, then plant them out when they're as thick as my little finger (which, I admit, IS quite skinny). I must be doing something wrong, but what?
