A hardy and reliable variety with long, thick shanks. Read more
Description
Why we love it:
  • A hardy and reliable variety with long, thick shanks.
  • Has an excellent flavour and is good for over-wintering

What you need to know:
  • 1 x Mr Fothergills Leek Elefant Seeds
  • Harvest: October to March
  • Indoors Sowing Guide: Sow indoors 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse. Keep moist. Transplant 5cm (2”) apart to other trays when large enough to handle. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out.
  • Outdoors Sowing Guide: Sow outdoors thinly in a seed bed, 1.5cm (½”) deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Water well until plants are established. Transplant 15cm (6”) apart into 15cm (6”) deep holes made with a dibber. Allow 30cm (1’) 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).
  • Soil Type: Well cultivated, fertile soil
  • Hints & Tips: Blanched plants have a milder flavour and better shank. The more soil that is drawn up around the plant the longer the white shank will be.
  • Pack Size: 500 Seeds
