Monty Don demonstrates two methods for planting young leeks in this short video clip from Gardeners’ World. First he shows you the traditional method, which aims to produce large single leeks with a long white stem. The second method involves planting clumps of young plants to produce lots of smaller leeks for harvesting together. He then outlines the pros and cons of each method. So give both methods and try and see which you prefer!
