Lancelot Leeks Certified Organic Onion Transplants

This dependable leek variety produces long white shafts with dark green foliage.  Harvest in late summer or early fall, or can be overwintered in warm climates.  Excellent flavor to complement any soup or roasted vegetable combination.

  • LEEK DETAILS:
    • Sturdy white shafts with dark green leaves
    • Days to maturity from transplant: 90 days
    • Suitable for early fall harvest in colder climates or overwintering in warmer climates.
    • Easy to clean & versatile in the kitchen.
    • For longer blanched shafts, hill plants as they develop.  
    • A great addition to late summer & early fall dishes.
  • TRANSPLANT INFORMATION: Our leek transplants are dormant when shipped. It is normal for them to be pale & slightly dry due to dormancy & shipping. Generally, we recommend planting within one week. Leeks are very hardy & these healthy transplants will thrive if well cared for. For your gardening success, we have switched from selling potted onion plants to onion transplants.
  • SHIPPING INFORMATION: We ship all dormant transplants beginning in early April. Our leeks are well-adapted for mid-northern states. If your region requires earlier planting you may want to source your leek transplants from a local nursery. For more information, see our Keene Garlic Seasonal Order Shipping Guide.

Basic Leek Growing Info

Sun Requirement: Leeks require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting leeks next to crops that might shade your leeks.
Soil Fertility: Leeks prefer rich soil with plenty of moisture. Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy leeks, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, leeks need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing.
Planting: Leeks grow best when transplanted into 6″ deep trenches with only 2-3″ of the plant above the soil. Plant your leeks up to 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost.
***For detailed instructions on how to grow onions & leeks from planting to fertilizing, all the way to harvest/storage, see this post on our blog:
