Blue Green Winter, organic seeds
Is a really hardy overwintering leek with a fairly upright growing, blue-green foliage. The stem is thick, medium long and doesn't form any kind of bulb at the root. Blue Green Winter is a modern variety with high resistance to disease. Can be harvested from October throughout the winter, until March. Cover with hay or straw in order to delay them being frozen to the ground, or, dig the leeks up and cover the roots with soil in a greenhouse or root cellar. In a milder climate they can stay out all winter and be harvested when needed.
