Remarkable earliness and length. Beautiful full-sized leeks. In favourable soil and culture, the white stems are over a 30 cm long to the first leaf. Upright, medium green leaves. While not hardy enough for over-wintering, it will withstand medium-heavy frost (-7 C) without losing its healthy appearance. Leeks have broad concave leaves, the sheathing bases of which form a tight cylinder, being the edible part. Leeks are easier to grow than onions, and more suited to colder climates. Sow in early autumn and spring. Sow 6 seeds between the distance of 30cm. They love very fertile soil. Ensure plenty of water. During the growing period hill the plants with soil 2 or 3 times, higher with each hoeing. This forces the leaves higher up the plant, the result being extra long blanched stalks, making a much greater edible portion.
