Harvesting

July - April

Planting+
Leek seed requires no prior treatment but soaking the seed a full 24 hours in lukewarm water can encourage germination. Leeks are slow growers.
Care+
Water extra during dry periods, keep the bed free of weeds and your leeks will thrive.
Specifics+
Leek is of member of the Alliaceae (onion) family and is the mildest flavoured among all the onion varieties (common onion being the sharpest).

There are two varieties of leek - Early and Late.

The earlies are less hardy although they can withstand a few degrees of frost. Best is to use the right variety for growing in the winter. The late grows slower than the early but is definitely hardy.

Leeks can be harvested as long as the ground is not frozen solid. If left in the ground over the winter, your leeks will shoot again in spring. As long as new leaf keeps appearing you can harvest them. If you wait too long a tall flower stalk with an attractive white flowering ball will appear.
