Product Information Chevron Down Chevron Forward

The American Flag Leek is an edible allium species closely related to onions and shallots. 

This leek variety has large, white stems that often measure 8 to 10 inches long and 2 inches across.

These leek seeds are a popular choice for kitchen gardens. The stems are tender and have excellent flavor, making them ideal for fresh consumption or cooked in soups!

To use leeks, cut off their roots (the very tip of their white stems) and then dice, slice, and/or mash them in any way you'd like.

Leeks are cold-tolerant.

Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

You can start American Flag Leek seeds indoors in a sunny location 8 weeks before the last frost. (Plants about 6" tall will transplant best) or you can sow leek seeds directly in the garden every 2" and cover with soil; thin to 4" apart when 4" tall. Note: As leeks mature, they should be earthed up and blanched like celery.

Planting Depth: 0.25 - 0.5"

Seed Spacing: Sow American Flag Leek seeds roughly 4" apart in rows, keeping rows approximately 15" apart

Nutrient Care Instructions: Apply SUPERthrive once per week. Soak in solution of 1/4 tsp per gal for 15 min. or longer depending on size and type.

Suggestions Chevron Down Chevron Forward

Leeks need a long growing season to reach full size. A leek can be left in the ground until a hard freeze or pulled when mature and stored in a cool area.

At Ferry Morse, we are proud of our non-GMO & guaranteed fresh seeds.
