What is the best way to harvest and store leeks as i have got a few to pull up and not sure on how to store them.
Ours stay in the ground until we need them. They do not store except as a frozen veg. Blanch lightly and freeze.
Mine stay in the ground too, until spring - that's if we haven't eaten them all by then. Any left then I freeze.
Hello , I leave mine in the ground at the allotment until I dig them up , never had a problem in winter so far
Will start harvesting them next week
One year I was so smug because I had loads in the ground. Their price in the shops went up because of the cold weather. Then I discovered I couldn't dig my leeks out of the ground because they were frozen in !!
Moral of the story? Before really severe weather, dig a few leeks and store them somewhere slightly warmer.
