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
