  • Planting Instructions

    When to plant:

    • If you are in Zone 6 or cooler, plant your leek seeds in early Spring when you can break into the ground.
    • If you are in Zone 7 or warmer, plant your leek seeds in the Fall.

    How to plant:

    • Plant your leeks in a sunny spot.
    • Leeks also need plenty of nitrogen in the soil - we recommend that you amend the soil either the season before planting or a few days before planting.
    • To get white stems, you’ll need to blanch your leeks. Plant them a little deeper than most seeds (6-8 inches) and the stems will remain white.  

    When to harvest:

    • You can harvest your leeks at any time, but usually they are best when the stems are at least 1 inch in diameter.  
    • If they are harvested much smaller than that, that's a scallion! They're still great for cooking.

    *Leeks are extremely cold-hardy down to 5 degrees F, making them a great option for northern gardeners!
