There are enough varieties of leeks that you can grow them in most kinds of weather. In winter, try ‘American Flag,’ ‘Blue Solaise,’ ‘Giant Musselburgh,’ ‘Siegfried,’ and ‘Winter Giant.’
Leeks are one of the few vegetables you can enjoy year-round. These sturdy ‘American Flag’ leeks look great in the garden, no matter what season it is.
Transplant leek seedlings by early summer.
Mulching leeks helps keep the edible parts white, sweet and tender.
