Leek 'Pennine' F1 Hybrid

Allium porrum

From British breeding comes the first - and only - hybrid pot leek. The result of painstaking work in crossing sterile male lines with top prize-winning show leeks. Leek 'Pennine' is a much thicker, but shorter blanch with a true pot leek appearance. This autumn variety is ideally grown in individual 25cm (10") pots or in well-prepared soil in the garden, where it will withstand adverse conditions right up until New Year. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12"). More info

Leek 'Nipper'

Allium porrum

This British bred variety is fast growing, making it ideal for harvesting as 'baby leeks' just 10 weeks after sowing. Sow them thickly and lift the leeks as they reach spring onion size for a delicious 'out of season' crop. With a milder flavour than spring onions, Leek 'Nipper' makes a fabulous addition to stir fries and salads. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 20cm (8"). More info

Leek 'King Richard'

Allium porum

A particularly early cropping variety that can be lifted by July from the very earliest sowings, but will easily stand until Christmas from a later sowing. The long, slender stems of Leek 'King Richard' are full flavoured and ideal for slicing. This RHS AGM variety can also be grown close together for delicious, succulent mini leeks, but is best harvested by Christmas as it is less hardy than some other varieties. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Leek 'Cairngorm' F1 Hybrid

Allium porrum

The first F1 leek from seed, produced by British breeding from specially selected top prize-winning show leeks! This stocky variety has superb vigour and uniformity making it ideal for growing individually as a pot leek. Early autumn maturity makes Leek 'Cairngorm' ideal for the show bench as well as outside in the vegetable plot, where stems will stand until after Christmas. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Leek 'Bulgaarse Reuzen - Lincoln'

Allium porrum

If you can't wait for the autumn leek harvest, use Leek Lincoln to bring your crops into summer! We've selected this vigorous grower to bring you the earliest picking. An early spring sowing will lead to medium sized clean white shanks for picking in late summer. With little risk of bolting and inbuilt disease resistance, Leek Lincoln also stands well in the soil for harvest right through autumn - if you have the restraint to leave some of the tender, full flavoured shanks in the ground that long! Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").
