Want to add some easy-to-grow onion cousins to your garden? Try some leeks! They’re frost tolerant, and can be grown almost any time of the year because they aren’t dependent on day length the way onions are.

Leeks add beauty to the garden, and don’t take up much space. The tasty greens and white stems will enhance everything from soups and sides to entrees. In fact, this month’s recipe is for a delicious leek dip. Best of all, you’ll have fresh leeks at a fraction of the cost of supermarket varieties.
Lancelot leeks are the easiest to grow and most widely adaptable leeks available. Each bunch contains approximately 60 plants. They can be grown in all areas since they are not day length-dependent. They will continue to grow as long as you continue to blanch them.
Leeks grow best in direct sunlight, in temperatures ranging from 55°-75° F. Plant them in well-drained soil that is neither too acid nor too alkaline. Work a balanced fertilizer (10-20-10) and a pre-emergent herbicide into the soil before planting.
When mature, leeks measure about an inch thick, but you can pull younger leeks to eat them like green onions. You can keep fresh leeks in your refrigerator’s crisper drawer for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to three months.

 

45-60 onion plants per bunch.    30 bunches per crate.

Plants should be here around February 15th.
