Why Grow Your Own Leeks?

We all know leeks for their white flesh and leafy green tops, which stand tall and don’t form a bulb like an onion. However, they saste similar to onions, but much milder and more sweet. When raw, you can enjoy the crunch, but when boiled, they can become more soft and provide subtle flavours to any soup or dish.

Leeks are a hardy plant that can thrive in cold and unpredictable weather conditions. Dobies have a vast variety of leek seeds for you to grow on the plot, including classic salad additions like Spring Onion ‘Atal’, to the stunning foliage of ‘Northern lights’. Not forgetting the extremely winter hardy Musselburgh leeks. Leaks are also great edible plants for producing food once the summer crops have become spent.

If you prefer to grow your own veg, then Leeks are a good option if you enjoy the rewarding process of plot to plate. Nothing tastes better than making your own homemade dishes extra special with homegrown ingredients picked straight from the veg patch.
