Our Feedback
Invoice Number 24330 Hi, I'm writing to tell you how delighted I am with my recent order of two Kiwi. I was totally blown away at the care that was taken in wrapping the plants (straw) and how moist and healthy the roots were, they arrived in fantastic condition. This is excellent customer service. I work in gardening and have to order plants all the time, I shall order again. What a contrast to recent orders I have made to Thompson & Morgan that took weeks and weeks to arrive and when they did the plants were dead, and the soil around the root in the bag poored out like dry sand. Thank you again.

Qty:

A very hardy variety that produces excellent quality leeks that are difficult to fault.

Harvested young, as baby leeks, these have a fantastically sweet flavour which doesn't falter if they are left to mature.

Leeks are arguably one of the most important fresh winter vegetables due to their hardiness. We've had Musselburgh literally disappear under several feet of snow for several weeks, and deal with temperatures as low as 5F (-15C), only to appear, unscathed, after the thaw!

  • Sow thinly in seed trays under protection January-March; or sow March-late April thinly in " (1 cm) deep drills 9" (23 cm) apart.
  • When approximately 8" (20 cm) tall lift the seedlings carefully and set out 8" (20 cm) apart in rows 16" (40 cm) apart by making holes approximately 4" (10 cm) deep, inserting the seedling and then filling with water, NOT SOIL.
  • Straighten up seedlings after approximately one week if required.
  • Top Tips
  • Leeks prefer a well-drained soil and a position in sun or part shaden.
  • To produce a greater amount of white stem earth up as growth develops.
  • Harvest as required, leaving the remaining crop in the ground.
