HOW TO GROW

315 seeds/gram Leeks are a long season plant so start seed indoors in February and early March. Sow the seed 7mm (1/4″) deep in a soil-less medium and keep at 20C (68F) during germination and growth. Transplant seedlings outside later in the spring when they are around 20cm (8″) tall. Space the transplants 10-15cm (4-6″) apart in rows 30-45cm (12-18″) apart. Seed can also be sown directly into the garden in April through June.
