Description for Leek Bunching

Allium ampeloprasum is the scientific name of the Leek and has few cultivated varieties. The edible part of the plant is a bundle of leaf sheaths that is sometimes erroneously called a stem or stalk.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Leek Tepals white, pink or red; anthers yellow or purple; pollen yellow Autumn Up to 2 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

The less hardy short-season leeks are planted in the spring. Sow indoors 8-10 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep in pots at least 6 inches deep, thinning to 1 inch apart when the seedlings are 3 inches tall. Use the soil with compost. Growing conditions on the cool side (60-65 degrees F) are best.

Hardened-off seedlings can be set out in the garden as soon as the soil can be worked. You can also plant leek seedlings 8-10 inches apart in a wide row by poking holes with the handle of a rake or hoe about 6 inches deep, then dropping the seedlings into the holes.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun Loose and well-drained Moderate 18 to 29 degrees C Use any organic fertilizer.
