Soil  Leek can handle most soil types, but it should be free draining. Don’t over-fertilize the soil prior to planting leeks as this will make them more susceptible to frost damage. Mixing in compost will suffice.

Soil pH Level 6.5-7.5

Position  Shade tolerant, so a good crop to take up that less than ideal spot in the patch.

How to Plant  Propagate in seed trays and transplant a month after germination or sow directly to veggie patch when the temperature is above 7 degrees as they can become stunted by frost.

Spacing 10-15 cm

Depth 0.5-1cm

Companion Plants Carrots

Approximate no. of seeds  80-90

Note: We source all of our seeds locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination

**Shipping – Not to Western Australia or Tasmania**
