Leek - Blauwgroene Winter
This is an outstanding variety for harvesting from winter through to spring. Leek Bandit has excellent garden performance and winter hardiness, showing good tolerance against rust and bolting. It has a good weight of stem without bulbing and dark leaves. The dark leaves contrast with pure white, thick, and superbly flavoured stems.
Sow seeds mid-March to late April. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Carefully lift when plants are large enough to handle and transplant to 23-25cm apart in the row and 45cm between rows, using a trowel or dibber, and water in. Keep watered during dry weather. Earth up the stems during the growing season.
