Enjoy a long-lasting crop of tasty home-grown leeks through the winter months with this extra hardy variety, Leek ‘Blauwgroene Herfst-Murcia’. Sow at intervals through spring and these leeks will be ready to harvest from October right through to January. Exceptional flavour and packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, by growing your own you’ll get to enjoy them at their best with freshly-picked flavour and highest nutritional qualities. To increase the length of the tasty stems, plant out in summer then earth-up in late August. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 30cm (12”).


1 packet (100 seeds) (KA9951)

Sow indoors 4-5 seeds in 5cm (2”) pots or used vending cups, or very thinly in a seed tray of good quality seed compost. Cover with 6mm (1?4in) of vermiculite or compost, and maintain at a temperature of 15- 20C (59-68F) until germination, which usually takes 14 -21 days. Once germinated, grow leek plants on in cool conditions.

Alternatively, sow thinly directly outside, 1cm (1/2”) deep in drills 30cm (12”) apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Carefully lift when plants are large enough to handle and transplant from mid-June to mid-July at a spacing of 23-25cm (9-10”) apart and 45cm (18”) between rows, using a trowel or dibber, and water in.

Cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Water the plants thoroughly after planting. Keep watered during dry weather. Earth up the stems during the growing season to increase the length of the blanched stem.

High in folic acid, potassium, pro-vitamin A and vitamin C. Contains beneficial sulphur compounds, as well as a potent antioxidant called quercetin.
