Growing Calendar for Leek Seeds - Musselburgh
Delivery: Early April to Late August
An old established favourite with short, thick stems and a mild flavour. Pay just pennies for dependable leeks that thrive in rich soil whether you grow them in the far North or on exposed sites.
These shorter leeks are easy to harvest in big numbers and show much of the fragrant white on the central shafts.
We recommend you provide a catch crop of lettuces Match or Bijou to give you quicker crops while waiting for your harvests of leeks. Catch crops are fast-growing vegetables or salads you can grow in between longer-growing crops.
