Garlic + Onion + Leek Seedlings

  • Organic American Flag Leek Seedling

    Plant each leek separately 6″ apart, in rows 12″ apart. Transplant in beds that retain moisture with 6 – 8 hours of sun. Adding a generous amount of good-quality organic compost will help you grow these leeks more successfully and make them more delicious. Dig holes so that a maximum of 2″ of leaves extend above the surface. Do not firm the soil; allow irrigation and rain to fill in the hole. Then, water regularly to ensure the the soil remains moist until harvest because leeks have shallow root systems. If you decide not to dig deep holes, mound up soil around the leeks to achieve long blanched stems – the tastiest part of the leek.

  • Organic Chive Seedling

    Give Chive seedlings four – six inches of space, and six inches between rows. Grow them in bunches in beds with four hours of sun. The mildest of all the onions grow as mounding perennial plants with purple edible blossoms.

  • Organic Garlic Chive Seedling

    If garlic cloves are a bit too strong for you, garlic chives are a good alternative. Both the leaves and the white star flowers are edible. Garlic chive leaves are broader than those of chives.

    Give seedlings six inches of space, and six inches between rows. Grow Garlic Chives in bunches and in beds with four hours of sun. This perennial will yield delicious leaves for a long time if it is sheared regularly and blossoms are continuously removed.

  • Organic Japanese Bunching Onion Seedling

    This perennial scallion-like onion is a winner with its striking sculptural presence and blue-green/ white palette  Mature clumps can grow to 2 feet high and wide.
