Planting Instructions: If you have a short growing season, plant indoors and transplant after the danger of frost has passed.

Outdoors, sow directly into rich, well-drained soil, ½ to ¾ inches deep, one to two inches apart in rows 18 inches apart. As the plants mature, thin to four inches apart.

They will benefit from deep fertilization with an organic fertilizer.

You can harvest your leeks anytime they are over one inch in diameter. Leeks are naturally resistant to disease and pests.
