Leeks provide a crop from summer through to spring.  They are a good source of folate. Can be sown direct in the garden or started indoors.

Leeks are a long season plant so start seed indoors in February and early March. Sow the seed 7mm (1/4in) deep in a soil-less medium and keep at 20 C (68 F) during germination and growth. Transplant seedlings outside later in the spring when they are around 20cm (8in) tall. Space the transplants 10-15cm (4-6in) apart in rows 30-45cm (12-18in) apart. Seed can also be sown directly into the garden in April through June.
