Black Pepper Butter:
To grow leeks, sow seeds in spring in peat-free compost. Keep them moist, then transplant in summer, either individually or in clumps. Harvest from autumn through spring. Alternatively, sow directly into prepared soil or buy seedlings.
For optimal growth, plant leeks in a sunny, sheltered area with well-drained soil enriched with manure or fertilizer. Use a dibber to create 20cm deep holes for seedlings, watering them in for robust growth. Alternatively, plant in small clumps. Monty Don demonstrates another method, focusing on harvesting flavourful small plants. Space clumps appropriately and maintain moisture through watering and mulching while keeping weeds at bay.
Your leeks will be ripe for harvesting starting from summer, depending on the variety. Lift them with a fork either individually or in clusters, being careful not to disrupt nearby plants. Leeks can remain in the soil until needed and will keep well in the fridge or a cool pantry for up to a couple of weeks after harvesting.
