Sow thinly, 1.25cm (½") deep in drills 23cm (9") apart on an outdoor seed bed March-April. When seedlings are 20cm (8") high, transplant after watering the seed bed. Using a dibber, make holes 12.5-15cm (5-6") deep and 23-30cm (9-12") apart each way. Place a plant in each hole and fill with water to settle the roots. Water frequently and gradually earth up plants, continuing until October. Grow leeks of exhibition quality by sowing under glass in February. Harvest September-March.
HEALTH BENEFITS: Anti bacterial and fungal. High in potassium (regulates heart rhythm, nerve impulses and muscle function), folic acid (required for the absorption of iron - important for healthy blood and the production of DNA maintaining cell structure) and vitamins A (for growth, healthy hair, skin, bones, teeth and eyes as well as resistance to respiratory infections) & C (anti-ageing, wound healing, decreasing blood cholesterol and prevention of infections. Assists the body in absorbing iron). COOKING HINTS: A traditional ingredient in soups and stews or as a boiled vegetable, but also try thinly sliced in stir-fries. Toby's Tip: Try salad leeks as a milder alternative to spring onions in summer. Earthing up plants for traditional leeks to blanch the stems is important to keep them tender for winter use.
