Leek - Perennial Leek - 93RW38

Details  Forms large clumps of thumb size stems which have a stronger leek flavour than standard leek though they are a bit more finicky when harvesting.
Best sown in spring forming clumps by late summer/autumn, if left in the ground through the following winter the clumps will form a mass of corns meaning the perennial leek will become permanent and difficult to eradicate. Some gardeners may prefer its perpetual feature while others prefer it as a annual vegetable by insuring its harvested before winter.
