    • Leeks – Musselburgh

      £6.99
      (20 Plug Plants)

      A tried and tested traditional variety
      Musselburgh produces huge, handsome leeks with thick stems and dark green leaves. It is reliable, easy to grow, winter hardy, with good disease resistance and an excellent strong flavour. It will be ready for harvesting late summer to early winter. It’s easy to grow leeks from plug plants – just follow the instructional leaflet that will arrive with your plug plants.

      Number of plants: 20 plug plants

      Variety: Musselburgh (organic)

      In the kitchen: Leeks are delicious in soups, stews and pies. You can steam, fry or boil. Finely chopping leeks brings out the flavour and texture.

      Delivery Info: Available to order now for delivery from late April 2022 until July 2022. Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

      Planting Advice: You may find multiple seedlings per plug, these are best separated out carefully. Use a pencil or small stick to make 5-10cm deep holes 10-15cm apart in the soil, then carefully put a leek seedling in each hole and water well to “puddle in”.

      Harvesting: Harvest in late summer/autumn before the plants start bolting (forming flower heads)

      *Transplants suitable for organic growing.

      Giant Winter Leeks

      £6.99
      (20 Plug Plants)

      The gardener’s choice of leek
      Giant Winter is an excellent late variety producing thick leeks that will hold well in the ground for a long time and are winter hardy. You will find more than one leek growing in most of your plug plants, so you will get plenty of leeks to harvest! You can either tease them apart to plant each leek separately, or plant together without separating. There is plenty of growing advice in the growing guide that arrives with the plug plants.

      Number of plants: 20 plug plants (although you are likely to receive two or three seedlings in each plug)

      Variety: Giant Winter (organic*)
