●● Leeks

It’s too soon to sow leeks and other veg­eta­bles out­doors, but you can make a head start in­side by rais­ing plants in­doors.

Sow seeds in pots of multi-pur­pose compost, gen­tly soak­ing them with wa­ter and firm­ing them down, be­fore sprin­kling a hand­ful of compost on top.

The pots can be placed on a warm win­dowsill or in a heated prop­a­ga­tor, which pro­vide ideal con­di­tions for ger­mi­na­tion, and then hard­ened off and planted out­doors in their fi­nal po­si­tion when they are around 15cm high.
