Allium porrum

DESCRIPTION: Sweet delicate onion flavoured vegetable especially popular during winter as an addition to soups, tarts and casseroles.
PLANTING: Plant late summer in warmer climates and spring to autumn in southern states. Sow seeds directly into their final position or into seed trays. Transplant when seedlings are approx 15-20cm high. Leeks grow best in trenches which are slowly filled as the plants mature. This is how the stems remain white and super sweet. Plant in full sun or part shade in free draining soil.
USE IN: Prepare delicious leek and potato soup fresh from the garden in less than 30 mins. Perfect for a quick midweek dinner.
CARE: Water seedlings daily until established and follow up with regular water especially during dry periods. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil. Apply liquid fertiliser regularly for best results;
