Leek Seeds - F1 Below Zero

Allium porrum

A British bred variety which combines the vigour of an F1 hybrid with extreme cold tolerance to produce superb quality leeks which can withstand cold winters. It produces pure white shanks with dark leaves that stand well over a long period without bolting and is resistant to rust.

An excellent long-standing leek with incredible cold tolerance and rust resistance. An ideal variety for anyone growing in exposed areas or northern climates. Sow leek seed more densely in either the garden or a patio container and use the thinnings for ‘baby’ leeks – they’re delicious and extend your cropping season!

Sow thinly direct into a finely raked seedbed at a depth of 13mm (½") in rows 30cm (12") apart. (Germination 14-18 days.) When ready to transplant make holes with a dibber 10-15cm (4-6") deep, 23cm (9") apart, drop a plant into each and fill with water to settle soil around the roots. Allow 38cm (15") between rows. To blanch, draw up earth to stems as growth develops. Leeks do well on most soils especially if well prepared. Sowing to Cropping: 35-40 weeks.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. Extremely hardy, and particularly useful in cold areas. HEALTH BENEFITS: High in potassium, folic acid and vitamins A and C. Culinary Tips: Use in soups and stews, as a boiled vegetable or in stir-fries.
