Plant Care & Advice

Direct sow thinly outdoors at a depth of 1cm (1/2") from March to April into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions in June. Alternatively sow leek seed indoors from February to April at a depth of 1cm (1/2"), in modules using free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 10-15C (50-59F) until after germination which usually takes 14 -21 days. Once germinated, grow leek plants on in cool conditions.
