How to Grow

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