awe, MA.
what's it called?
you can PM me if you think it's best.

richard...that is the biggest leek i've ever seen. how did you do it?
i've planted out some leeks that i got in a punnet from *ahem* bunnings.
also started some seeds for myself of claretan (or something like that)...i hope they like to grow on the shortening days.
hard to tell here. i like the two seasons...but it can sometimes be hard to figure out if you've got the right varieties or not.

I am not quite sure when we put ours in I am guessing before sept and then got dug up and moved cos the tommys were growing too close to them and of course our dear cat loves to dig up new plantings LOL
We have had one good crop and still got some growing
We have been clearing out some of the beds and replanting stuff we can only do short bursts at gardening these days our poor old bodies are worn out Sad
