  A long thin leek of the best quality light green leaves. Fine autumn variety that is popular in Europe, descending from Bulgaria. Long growing period, of up to 6-9 months, they store well in ground during the cooler months.

  When to Plant:

Zone 1: September - March

Zone 2: August - April

Zone 3: January - March

Zone 4: February - March

  Soil: Leek can handle most soil types, but it should be free draining. Don’t over-fertilize the soil prior to planting leeks as this will make them more susceptible to frost damage. Mixing in compost will suffice. Soil pH Level 6.5-7.5

  Position: Shade tolerant, so a good crop to take up that less than ideal spot in the patch. 

  How to Plant: Propagate in seed trays and transplant a month after germination or sow directly to veggie patch when the temperature is above 7 degrees as they can become stunted by frost.

  Spacing 10-15 cm

  Depth 0.5-1cm

  Companion Plants Carrots

  Approximate no. of seeds 80-90
