On Receipt - Remove the plants from the packaging immediately upon receipt. Check the compost is moist and water if necessary. All the vegetable plants can be planted immediately into a moist soil in the garden, provided conditions are suitable. Once planted water well to settle the soil around the plants. Soil Preparation - Vegetable plants require a well drained soil in a sunny position that has ideally been dug in the autumn. Prior to planting lightly fork over the area removing any weeds that have grown, and break down any large lumps. Apply a general fertiliser such as Growmore and rake into the surface. During the growing period keep the plants well watered in dry spells and keep weeds under control. LEEK - The plugs may contain more than one seedling and they should be gently separated avoiding damage to the roots. The plants should be spaced 23cm (9") apart and 30cm (12") between the rows. Place in the bottom of a hole 15cm (6") deep. Do not cover with soil but gently fill the hole with water. The hole will naturally fill with soil as time passes which will produce the white stem. Applying a liquid feed will help to thicken the stem but this should be stopped by late August.

Caring for your Leek plants

Leeks should be watered regularly until fully established. Once established, they will only require watering during very dry periods. Hoe between rows of leeks to destroy weeds and bring insect larvae to the surface. Leeks can be harvested from autumn onwards; however, they stand well in the ground and can be lifted when required throughout the winter and spring. Lift leeks by levering them out of the ground with a spade or fork.
