Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil February to April. Transplant into the garden in April or June, when plants are at least the size of a pencil lead. Space 6” in rows that are 1’ apart. Leeks benefit from frequent watering and shallow cultivation. Harvest as needed throughout autumn and winter.

Seed Saving

To save seed, leave 20+ plants in the ground through the second spring and summer. Large globe shaped flowers attract pollinators. Isolate from other leeks by at least ½ mile.
