Long leek leaves?
« on: September 24, 2023, 14:34 »
Good afternoon everybody. 
the title says it all...Leek leaves are long and have a tendence to flop over.  Anyone know a preventer or a cure?

Cheers.  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

I've read that if they're trimmed when planting out it prevents them growing too long!

Good morning AndyRVTR,  diddit!  I always trim the leaves by 1/3rd and the roots by half.

Ditto brownp,  we'll have to see on Thursday!

Cheers,  Tony
