Introducing Musselburgh Leeks, a popular and easy-to-grow variety with a mild, sweet flavour. These leeks are a great addition to any vegetable garden, and can be used in a variety of dishes such as soups, stews, and quiches.
Musselburgh Leeks prefer a well-drained, fertile soil in a sunny or partially shaded position. They can be planted in the spring or autumn, with spring planting producing earlier crops. Musselburgh Leeks can grow up to 60cm in height, and have a spread of around 20cm.
In terms of feeding, leeks require a soil that is rich in organic matter. A balanced fertilizer can be applied before planting, and additional feedings can be provided during the growing season. Mulching around the base of the plants can also help to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
Musselburgh Leeks are typically ready to harvest in the autumn and winter months, once they have reached a good size. The white stem and green leaves can both be used in cooking, and are delicious when sautéed or roasted.
With their mild, sweet flavour and versatility in the kitchen, Musselburgh Leeks are a great addition to any vegetable garden. Easy to grow and care for, they are an ideal choice for both experienced and novice gardeners.
