The quick and convenient step by step guide to growing your London Leeks Seed!
Leeks have shallow roots and like ample and even water. They also do best with a steady source of nitrogen. Feed monthly with a high-nitrogen fertilizer; fish emulsion works well. Leeks do not compete well with weeds, so keep the area groomed and weed free.
How to Grow London Leek Seeds!
#1 | Start leeks indoors 2-3 months before the last frost of spring, sowing them 1/4" deep in a flat. Keep the temperature 60-70 degrees F.
#2 | Germination should occur in 5-12 days.
#3 | When they reach a height of 2", and there is no chance of frost in your area, transplant the seedlings to separate pots.
#4 | Transplant them to the garden in rich soil and full sun, about a week after the last spring frost; the plants will be 6-12" tall.
#5 | Dig holes 1-2' apart and deep enough so that the plant only emerges several inches from the soil; water the seedlings and fill the hole with loose dirt.
Tip: For companion planting benefits, plant leeks with celery, onions, or carrots.
