This variety of leek is a traditional-looking crop that grows dark green foliage with plants that do no bulb easily. Therefore, these provide straighter stems that are easy to grow on the veg patch and tastes wonderful. The 30-40cm long shanks develop a great proportion of white flesh and even more if you choose to earth them up.

‘Lancelot’ is a versatile crop in the kitchen and is an excellent addition to homemade soups, quiches and salads, or can be roasted for delicious Sunday dinners. Late autumn/early winter variety (Late August- January).

Sow thinly direct into a finely raked seedbed at a depth of 1.3cm (½”) in rows 30cm (12″) apart. (Germination 14-21 days). When ready to transplant make holes with a dibber 10-15cm (4-6″) deep, 23cm (9″) apart, drop a plant into each and fill with water to settle soil around the roots. Allow 38cm (15″) between rows. To blanch, draw up earth to stems as growth develops. Leeks do well on most soils especially if well prepared. Can also be started off in trays.
