When to Sow Autora Leek Seeds

January to February Under glass, or March to April Outdoors

Plant Out

May to June

Harvest

October to January

Where To Sow

Early sowings can be made under glass. Sow the seed into pots or trays and cover the seed with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. 
For Outdoor sowings, sow the seed thinly, 1.5cm (1/2in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Water ground regularly, especially during dry periods.  

What to do next

Once early sowings have germinated transplant into individual pots and grow on under glass until April before moving to a cold frame to harden off before planting out at 25-30cm (10-12in) apart in the row and 45cm (18in) between rows.
Outdoor sowings once large enough to handle, carefully lift plants and transplant to the same spacings as above using a trowel or dibber, and water in.

Handy Tip

Keep watered during dry weather. Earth up the stems during the growing season to increase the length of blanched stem.
