Leek 'King Richard'
The King of Leeks! An excellent early variety, producing extra- long shanks that are easy to clean and uniform. A cook's favourite. Harvest early as `baby leeks'.
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.
