Leeks are extremely hardy,
do not take up much space, are easily grown, and resistant
to disease of all kinds. They can be harvest all winter, even in New England.
It is helpful in snow country to mark their location, and a thick mulch helps with getting them out of frozen soil.
Leeks require well manured or composted soil and an early start-many people start them in January or February and plant out in March or April.
Hill them up with dirt or mulch as they grow to make long, white stems. Days are from transplant.
