Stamford Leek Seeds are an early, high performing premium variety producing good quality long length shafts with erect dark blue-green erect foliage, and offering very good winter hardiness.
This UK bred leek is a reliable performer with good uniformity, and field trials have shown good resistance to bulbing and rust.
Harvesting time will depend on sowing time. The leeks will store well once picked if heeled in.
