High quality new Pot Leek from the breeder Fosters Seeds.
New Pot Leek Amelia bred by Keith Foster, breeder of the Yorkshire Blue, Yorkshire Green and Yorkshire Giant. Championship winning Pot Leeks.
We trialled these in 2016 and were very happy with how they grew. Bred from the same parentage as the iconic Joe Jones and Yorkshire Green Pot Leeks .
This pot leek, like all other Pot Leeks, need to be grown very cool, a heat mat set at just 15c is perfectly adequate , no lights and no air heating ,grow them in a cold greenhouse during winter on the heat mat., plant in raised beds around April that have just an overhead cover to keep the rain off. If planting in a tunnel , it must be very well ventilated, Pots Leeks are very hardy and thrive when grown cool. Too many growers force their Pot Leeks in warm greenhouses with lights, consequently they are usually over the top by July! Pot Leek Amelia grown as advised will produce quality leeks that will stay short .
Limited number of young plants available from Fosters Seeds. November 2017.PRICE IS FOR 10 young plants grown in modules ready for potting on.
