Care Guide

Good Pest and Disease Resistance

Leeks can suffer from Onion Flies, the Allium Leaf Miner, White Onion Rot and Allium Rust. The best defence against these scourges is a horticultural fleece (for the pests) and soundgarden hygiene practices (for the diseases). soundgarden hygiene practices includes washing tools and boots regularly, especially if you have been to another garden, and keeping leaves and foliage dry by watering at the ground.MORE

Water Often in Summer

Full SunMORE

Full Sun

Leek plants need around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Fertile, Well-Draining Soil

A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.MORE

Feed Initially

When you first plant the Leeks, they can do with an initial feed with an organic fertiliser such as Chicken Manure Pellets. Sprinkle to your product's description and try to avoid sprinkling directly on the plant as the nitrogen may burn the young seedlings.MORE

Not required

Put the tools down! No pruning required.MORE
