Leek - Giant Winter

This is the gardeners choice of leek. Giant Winter is an excellent, late variety producing heavy, thick stems that will stand in the ground for a long time. Not only is the leek a well-known tasty winter vegetable, but its root system has the added advantage of improving heavy soils. Leeks are in the ground for quite a long time and do take a fair amount of work, but they really are worth all that effort; so it’s not surprising they will be found on almost every vegetable plot.

Sow the seeds from February under glass, or from March to April outdoors. Early sowings can be made under glass. Sow the seed into pots or trays and cover the seed with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. For Outdoor sowings, sow the seed thinly, 1.5cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Water ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Once early sowings have germinated, transplant into individual pots and grow on under glass until April, before moving to a cold frame to harden off before planting out.
