Description How to Grow Delivery Reviews
A particularly early cropping variety that can be lifted by July from an early planting, but will easily stand until Christmas from a later planting. The long, slender stems of Leek 'King Richard' are full flavoured and ideal for slicing. This RHS AGM variety can also be grown close together for delicious, succulent mini leeks, but is best harvested by Christmas as it is less hardy than some other varieties. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Leeks should be watered regularly until fully established. Once established, they will only require watering during very dry periods. Hoe between rows of leeks to destroy weeds and bring insect larvae to the surface. Leeks can be harvested from autumn onwards; however they stand well in the ground and can be lifted when required throughout the winter and spring. Lift leeks by levering them out of the ground with a spade or fork.
