Product Description

Grow Heirloom Leeks - Plant American FlagLeek Seeds

American Flag Leek is a classic leek and the predominant choice for home gardeners. A close relative of both onion and garlic, leeks are most commonly used in soups and stews, but can also be used effectively in salads. Considered an "overwintering" variety, American Flag Leeks were bred to endure cold Northeastern winters.

  • Planting Instructions

    When to plant:

    • If you are in Zone 6 or cooler, plant your leek seeds in early Spring when you can break into the ground.
    • If you are in Zone 7 or warmer, plant your leek seeds in the Fall.

    How to plant:

    • Plant your leeks in a sunny spot.
    • Leeks also need plenty of nitrogen in the soil - we recommend that you amend the soil either the season before planting or a few days before planting.
    • To get white stems, you’ll need to blanch your leeks. Plant them a little deeper than most seeds (6-8 inches) and the stems will remain white.  

    When to harvest:

    • You can harvest your leeks at any time, but usually they are best when the stems are at least 1 inch in diameter.  
    • If they are harvested much smaller than that, that's a scallion! They're still great for cooking.

    *Leeks are extremely cold-hardy down to 5 degrees F, making them a great option for northern gardeners!

Fast growing and hardy

Looking forward to a large crop at over 80% germination rate it works well as a border edging plant in my herb garden( like chives).

More People Should eat Leeks

I don't know why Leek is not a more popular vegetable. I use it in everything. This is the best leek I have ever grown in my vegetable garden.
