The Right Way to Plant Leeks

The Right Way to Plant Leeks

For a beginner gardener, leeks may be a confusing vegetable.

They look like onion seedlings, but they’re not onions. In fact, they’re quite different. They have a thicker and tougher texture. Their blades are thicker as well. If anything, they’re closer in texture to a young garlic, than an onion.

But, how do leeks get that long, white stalk? If you plant a leek in the ground, as you would an onion seedling, you’ll find that most of the stem will be green and too tough to consume.

Watch this video, where I show you the correct way to plant your leek seedlings.

If it’s your first time planting leeks, this method will surprise you.

It’s super easy and quick!
