A traditional French winter heirloom that is hardy and cold-resistant as well as being an attractive addition to the cottage garden. The flags are blue-green which turn violet after a cold spell whilst the shanks are thick/medium length.
For general purpose sow March-April outdoors in prepared seedbed for use from October to April. Sow the leek seed thinly about 1 inch apart in drills about 1/4 inches deep and cover the seeds with fine sifted soil. Water if needed. Drills should be about 6 inches apart in the permanent bed. Thin as soon as possible to about 2 inches and then thin again to about 4 inches apart. Can be sown earlier under glass.
