Planting Leeks

By | March 24, 2011

We’ve just planted out some leeks in the glasshouse. As commercial growers we need to make sure that the spacing is right so as to deliver the optimum yield and make the plants easy to weed. We use a bamboo grid to plant them at approx 13cm centres which means we can use the 8cm small wolf tools – hoes, rakes etc to keep the plants clean.
