Great healthy, vigorous early exclusive variety ready to crop from mid-summer. Uniform in growth these make an attractive addition on your plot.

Leeks appreciate a sunny spot so bear this in mind when sowing or planting. It pays to prepare the soil well before sowing leeks or adding young plants. In the winter add lots of bulky compost or manure to the soil to increase the nutrient levels.

To top up and really put the young plants in good stead, add a general purpose fertiliser a couple of weeks before sowing or planting.
