Leek Norwich F1 Vegetable Seeds are a high quality, British bred maincrop variety. Plants are vigorous and slow to bolt with an upright habit. Plants produce heavy crops of smooth shanks. An excellent source of vitamin C, iron and folate.

Sow & Grow:

Sow outdoors thinly in a seed bed, 1.5cm (1/2") deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 15cm (6") apart into 15cm (6") deep holes made with a dibber. Allow 30cm (1ft) between rows. Water seedlings, but do not fill holes with soil. As plants grow, draw up soil onto them to improve length of blanch (white stem)

Sow indoors 0.5cm (1/4") deep, in a try of compost. Water well & place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2") apart to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out.

Hints & Tips:

Apply high nitrogen fertiliser to your leek bed just prior to planting them out in the summer to help them through a long growing season
