Leek - Blauwgroene Herfst – Lancelot
This is an alternative as a milder flavoured spring onion when sown thickly. Leek Lancelot is ideal for growing in containers, use in salads, stir-fries or as a steamed vegetable. It can also be grown as a full sized leek for autumn and winter harvesting.
Sow seeds from March to May. Sow seeds quite thickly direct outside or in containers, 13mm deep. Sow seed in succession for a continuous supply of baby leeks. No thinning is necessary. If required for full blanched leeks in autumn/winter, then sow thinly and transplant, allowing 25cm between plants. Earth up around stems as they develop. Keep well watered during dry weather.
