Leeks plants have a high nitrogen requirement and do best in an open position on rich, well-worked soil into which plenty of well-rotted organic matter has been added. Allow 15cm/6in between plants and 30cm/1ft between rows. Make holes with a dibber about 15cm/6in deep, and drop a plant into each hole. Fill each hole with water, but not with soil. To ensure a long white shaft, draw up soil round the plants as they develop. Read more
About our Veg Plants
Vegetable plants are the perfect choice if you don’t have the time or facilities to grow lots of different varieties from seed. They are also useful for replacing plants lost to the weather or pests and diseases. Grown by experienced nurserymen, our plants will be delivered at the right time for growing in their final position on your plot. Hand graded and packed, they are sent directly from the nursery and fully hardened off before despatch. All varieties are supplied with easy-to-follow growing hints and instructions. Show less
