Growing this plant in varied soils is easy as the plant accommodates many soils that are not waterlogged. The hardy abilities of this plant help it to grow at all times even during harsh winter times. Moisture in the soil during the growing season is important. Applying manure to the soil in average amounts helps to a healthy leek production. Application of organic compost is well-conducted dug in the soil before planting and during the growing period.
I found planting leeks in a soilless mix before taking it to the grounds outdoors good. Leeks are biennial and can be planted for the spring and the fall period. Planting the germinated baby leeks to the ground requires watering during the dry period. The use of compost for the soil adds nutrients to the plants. Adding mulch helps retain soil moisture inside and keep weeds away. Loose soil that is mixed with sand has proved helpful for my farm helping the leeks grow healthy and with a smooth texture.
