Leek - Herfstruezen 3 – Porvite
This is an excellent leek giving mid green, erect foliage, and heavy, uniform stems. It also features resistance to bulbiness and bolting, as well as high rust tolerance. This leek also has good standing ability in the garden.
Sow seeds from mid January to February under glass for transplanting. Alternatively, sow from March to April outdoors. For earliest crops sow seeds 1cm deep, in pots or modules of good seed compost at 15C under glass or in a propagator. For maincrops, sow thinly in a prepared seedbed outdoors or under glass. Harden off early sowings for a few days in April prior to dibbing in 2cm deep. Put one plant in each hole and just water in to settle soil around the roots. Allow 23cm between plants, and allow 3cm between rows. Water well until established. It will grow on any ordinary soil in full sun or part shade.
