Harvest your leeks in August and enjoy leeks that are similar in texture to spring onions yet have that satisfying flavour only found in leeks.
With Zermatt you can enjoy harvesting leeks piece-meal. Choose a proportion to harvest when they are the size of spring onions for zesty salads and to make interesting side dishes for summer fare.
Leave part of your crop to grow on into adult leeks with long shafts ready from autumn at just the right time to harvest for accompanying warming meals when hot, satisfying food becomes all the more appealing.
Happy growing in containers or planters you can grow this variety when you are short of space. Alternatively grow in rows in your beds; they look extra attractive with their fountain-like leaves.
Use as baby Leek or leave to mature.
Sow Indoors: January-March under glass.
Sow Outdoors: March-April thinly into pre watered soil ½in (1cm) deep in rows 6in (15cm) apart in seed bed. Keep soil moist at all times.
