American Flag Leek - Organic

$3.75

130 day.  The traditional variety of leek grown by backyard gardeners, American Flag is an excellent variety.  It overwinters well and can be harvested in March in milder climates.

 

Minimum of 150 seeds per packet.

 

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Planting Depth: 1/8 inch

Plant Spacing: 4-6 inches

 

Start indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Sow up to 100 seeds in a 4-6 inch pot. To transplant, separate out the small, grass-like seedlings by rolling them around in your fingers gently. Trim tops to 4 inches and roots to 2 inches. Place in a deep trench on their sides, 4-6 inches apart. Cover the roots and then water. Seedlings are very tough and transplant well. When the seedlings are established, continue to fill the trench to blanch the stems of the leeks.
