Organic Leek: Giant Winter 2. Allium porrum.

This variety of leek is a hardy, sturdy variety that does well here in NI. It matures late, from January onwards and stands for a long time.

How to grow:
Sow seeds in deep pots thickly under cover in early February or sow in beds outside March/April. Once they’re about 7-8″ tall separate them out gently and drop into holes made with a 1″ diameter stick/dibbler of about 6″ deep and 14″ apart. Water in well filling up the hole you made for each one.

Problem solving:
Leeks are pretty easy to grow. This variety likes fertile, deeply dug soil.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Sauteed with onion and kale, olive oil and salt. The bedrock of stews with potato, parsley, carrot and anything else you love, divine in stews and casseroles.

Cultural history:
A cultivar of the native broad leaf leek, Allium ampeloprasum, native to southern Europe and Asia.
