Leek Musselburgh - There is nothing like pulling up your own home-grown leeks from the vegetable patch in the middle of winter- they taste wonderful. Leeks need a long growing season but can be harvested from autumn to late winter. They grow well in a deep container too, so if space is short you can still grow and harvest your own leeks.
Well packaged. Small plants but healthy and far more than the 20! They're doing well in my greenhouse. They have a bit to grow before I can consider planting out. I think they will provide me with a good crop this Winter.

I usually buy leek plants locally but this year because of the present epidemic I decided to try these plug plants. I could not have made a better choice. Really healthy plants, well packed and delivered when advised. Will deal again.
