Organic Leek - Carentan
This variety produces large thick stems with blue-green foliage for cropping late October to early January.
In March or April sow the seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills 2cm deep in short rows. Thin the seedlings to 4-5cm apart as they grow. When the seedlings are about the thickness of a pencil, they should be lifted and transplanted. Make a 15cm deep hole with a rod, trim off the ends of roots and leaves, drop into the hole and fill the hole with water. Do not fill the hole with soil. The length of white stem can be increased by earthing up as the plant grows
