Details

The leek is a national emblem of Wales. According to legend, or perhaps due to a Shakespearean reference, Saint David ordered his Welsh soldiers to identify themselves by wearing the vegetable on their helmets in an ancient battle against the Saxons that took place in a leek field. It is still worn on St. David's Day each March 1st. This variety produces heavy, dense, stout stalks that sweeten up in the fall/winter.

Sow under protection in late winter or early spring, then transplant any time after soil can be worked. Make a hole about 8" deep and drop sturdy seedlings into the hole. Allow rain to wash soil into hole, slowly filling it. Harvest at pencil-thin stage for baby leeks or anytime thereafter.
