Description

Organic Leek: Autumn Giant 2. Allium porrum.

This vigerous variety of leek is ready throughout autumn and stands well throughout the winter.
Leeks are proving to be one of the staples that this year has not been adversely affected by climate changes.

How to grow:
Sow seeds in deep pots thickly under cover in February or sow in beds outside March/April. Once they’re about 7-8″ tall separate them out gently and drop into holes made with a 1″ diameter stick/dibbler of about 6″ deep and 14″ apart. Water in well filling up the hole you made for each one.

Problem solving:
Leeks are pretty easy to grow. This variety grows really well in fertile, deeply dug soil.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Sauteed with onion and kale, olive oil and salt. The bedrock of stews with potato, parsley, carrot and anything else you love, divine in stews and casseroles.

Cultural history:
A cultivar of the native broad leaf leek, Allium ampeloprasum, native to southern Europe and Asia.

Avg 350 seeds per gram.
