Common Questions

Are my Giant Winter leeks suffering from a disease? If your leeks start to develop orange or brown marks on the foliage then your veggies are probably suffering from leek rust. Leek rust is a fungal disease that can affect your vegetable crops in the late summer and early Autumn.

Are Giant Winter Leeks winter hardy? Yes. Your Giant Winter leeks will survive a lot of the cold weather that winter has to offer. You can harvest them throughout the winter until you need them.

Do Giant Winter leeks need full sun or shade? Your leeks will appreciate a position in the sun but can still be grown well in a little shade. We suggest you choose a sunny spot for your Giant Winter leeks with a lot of organic soil.
