Temperatures Garden leekSole pieno
Let's grow the The Garden leek in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. During the winter months of January or February itís possible to grow some products in our crop, which develop without problems, if provided with the shelter of small green houses or polyethylene tunnels; usually during these months various types of firstlings are cultivated.Let's grow the The Garden leek outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Care Garden leek
The Garden leek has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. This plant in the winter assumes a greenwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 80 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants have a one or two year development.

Feed Garden leek
The soil of the crop is enriched at the end of the winter, when we prepare it for the spring; usually an earthworm humus is used, or some mature manure. When we plant the new little plants, in the spring, itís possible to enrich the soil furtherly with granular slow release fertilizer.

Irrigation Garden leekTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Garden leek every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. Garden plants are often attacked by numerous fungal diseases; to avoid the most common diseases from developing, letís water the garden making the water stream, therefore avoiding to wet the foliage.
