Harvest; December - March

 

Winter Farinto is a high-quality winter hardy leek with a long white stem with little to no bulb formation and blue-green leaves. This variety is very frost-resistant making it perfect to grow through winter.

 

Sow from February - March indoors or sow directly in April - May.

 

Sow seeds in modules or trays inside or a seed bed outside 1cm deep

.

For seed beds, sow thinly in drills 15cm apart. 

When the plants are about 10-15cm tall and about the thickness of a pencil, they are ready to transplant.

Using a dibber make holes 15-20 cm deep and 15cm apart. Carefully lift the Leek plants and separate them. You can trim the roots by two thirds and the tops of the plant but this is not absolutely necessary. Drop the plants into the holes and fill the hole with water or a weak seaweed solution.

Some soil will fall in to cover the roots but do not refill the holes with soil. The plants will grow and swell filling the hole and be ready to harvest from late Summer to Winter depending on the variety.
