A new leek for 2019 . Leek Fencer is an early maturing F.1 hybrid variety with a very long shank suitable for cropping from November onwards.Hardy leek, not typically dark green but has a good appearance with white shank. Outstanding new variety for sowing from January onwards .
Its best to sow leeks for the Kitchen early and plant out in April , they need a long season to mature into good size leeks. We sow them direct into modules at a temperature of around 18c, they donít need much heat once they are through , they are quite happy to sit in a cold greenhouse or tunnel on the floor once they have a couple of leaves, from a January sowing you will have good strong leeks to plant out . Always plant leeks on a well ventilated ground preferably where leek rust as never been seen.
