Direct sow thinly outdoors at a depth of 1cm (1/2") from March to April into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions in June. Alternatively sow leek seed indoors from February to Aprilat a depth of 1cm (1/2"), in modules using free-draining, seed sowing compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 10-15C (50-59F) until after germination which usually takes 14 -21 days. Once germinated, grow leek plants on in cool conditions.
When leeks are at least 15cm (6") tall, transplant them into well prepared, rich fertile, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Plant leeks at a distance of 23cm (9") between plants and 30cm (12") between rows. Using a thick dibber or trowel, create each planting hole to a depth of 15cm (6") and lower the leeks into the holes ensuring that they reach the bottom. Fill each hole with water, washing sufficient soil around the plants to ensure that they can establish. This planting method will produce leeks with well blanched stems. Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting.
