Blue Solaise Leek Seeds
Blue Solaise is a very hardy fresh leek with striking blue / green leaves. As the weather gets colder the leaves on this leek present a deep colour with each drop in temperature!
Although our winters here in the UK are not as cold this leek performs very well in sub zero conditions producing short stems. Excellent flavour, great grown in pots and copes well with bunching.
Can you plant Blue Solaise leek seeds straight into the ground? Yes, you can plant your leek seeds straight into the ground during the early spring months. If you are planning to grow leeks over the winter then it is advised to sow your leek seeds into pots to aid the germination cycle.
How often should I water Blue Solaise leeks? You should be checking your soil moisture often until they are well established. Once your plants are established they will require around an inch of water each week through rainfall or other methods. If the leeks don't get enough moisture from the soil then the stems can be tough and become inedible.
Do Blue Solaise leeks need full sun? Leeks require a long growing season and can take up to 150 days to fully mature. For your Blue Solaise to really thrive they should be getting up to eight hours of sunlight a day. However, they can still grow well in partial shaded weather.
