LANCELOT LEEK (100 days)- Discontinued

1


We suggest trying Carantan Leek as a substitute for Lancelot

 

Substantially earlier than others and of high quality. The earlier you start it, the better it will perform. Transplant in April/May and “hill up” several times for long, well-blanched leeks. Flavor is mild. Germ 5-10 days.     200 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- 8-10 weeks before last frost with soil temperatures 60-75 degrees. Plant in flats 1/4” deep, 1/4” apart. Transplant seedlings out mid/late spring, 2-6” apart. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Seedlings should be about a pencil thick in size at planting time.

Outdoors- Sow 1/4” deep early spring. Thin to 2-6” apart.

Harvest- Start harvesting baby leeks at 1/2” diameter and leave some for a larger end of season harvest.

Tips- Plant into fertile soil with lots of organic matter and adequate water for optimum growth. You can plant leeks in a trench and as the plants mature, fill in around them to assist in blanching.

One of best plants in garden

Just follow the instructions for growing leeks and these are never disappointing. Here in the Texas Panhandle where the summers get excessively hot and dry, my best plants thrive in my West side of the house garden where they get sun only about 4-5 hours per day. However, in the South (full sun all day) and East garden (no more than 2-3 hours of direct sun per day), they are equally plentiful. I start with a 6" deep trench that I continue to fill to 2" above throughout the growing season. Half of the fill is always compost materials. I'm satisfied with the 1.5-2" diameter leeks produced. But, with 2-3 gallons of frozen, chopped up leeks in the freezer, I'll need to cut back on this year's plantings. My wife uses them for everything!
