Leeks a planting and progress to date
just thought i would share with you how i grow leeks which i read in a book about five years ago.
i have used this method ever since as i have found it to be very easy and have got fantastic returns in volume
Plant seeds approx 100 in a ten/twelve inch pot early March and have kept them in a coldframe since coming through in the greenhouse.
This weekend i have planted out approx 300 and have still some to go in another part of my garden.
Photographs show leeks in pot which i lift out and steep in water which gets most of the compost off them and finally wash under tap at allotment. they come apart very easy and i cut the roots down to an inch and trim top and plant in a hole made with my dibber 6 inches deep and then water in only do not back fill soil
An easy method with very little failure and maual effort
