PLANT AMERICAN FLAG LEEK SEEDS - GROW HEIRLOOM LEEKS
 
A close relative and with a similar taste to both onions and garlic, Leeks are a wonderful home-garden choice.  Creating a tasty bulb with long green leaves, leek seeds should be planted indoors 2 months before your last frost and overwinters well.  Used in soups, stews and salads, Leeks are a versatile vegetable that can be grown in both northern and southern states.

When to plant:

  • If you are in Zone 6 or cooler, plant your leek seeds in early Spring when you can break into the ground.
  • If you are in Zone 7 or warmer, plant your leek seeds in the Fall.

How to plant:

  • Plant your leeks in a sunny spot.
  • Leeks also need plenty of nitrogen in the soil - we recommend that you amend the soil either the season before planting or a few days before planting.
  • To get white stems, you’ll need to blanch your leeks. Plant them a little deeper than most seeds (6-8 inches) and the stems will remain white.  

When to harvest:

  • You can harvest your leeks at any time, but usually they are best when the stems are at least 1 inch in diameter.  
  • If they are harvested much smaller than that, that's a scallion! They're still great for cooking.

*Leeks are extremely cold-hardy down to 5 degrees F, making them a great option for northern gardeners!
