Leek 'Jaune Du Poitou'

ORGANIC! This French heirloom from 1853 has short, wide shanks and fan- like, yellow-green leaves. Fast growing, this is a great variety for beginner green thumbs.

How to grow

The tastiest leeks grow in nutrient rich soil, with a pH close to neutral. Transplant tall seedlings into 10cm deep holes to ensure a long shank, or hill them up with straw as they grow.
