Sowing Months Harvest Months
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.
Sow March to April when the soil is warm. 1. Prepare the soil well by raking until it is fine and crumbly, removing any large stones. 2.Make 1cm (1/2in) drills in the soil spaced 30-45cm (12-18in) apart. 3. Separate the seed tapes at the perforation and if necessary cut to the desired length. 4.Water the open drill so that the seed tape sticks to the soil well. 5. Place the seed tape in the seed drill, along each row. 6. Cover seed tapes and gently firm the soil down using the back of a rake. 7.Water regularly and keep moist but not over wet. 8. Draw up the soil around the stems as they develop to help them whiten. 9. Lift as required when stems are thick.
