    The gardener’s choice of leek
    Giant Winter is an excellent late variety producing heavy thick stems that will hold well in the ground for a long time and are winter hardy.

    Number of plants: 20

    Variety: Giant Winter (organic*)

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

    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)
