transplanting baby leeks

This is the time for transplanting those robust leek seedlings that have been growing on in a plantpot since March.

Prepare the bed by levelling and hoeing.

Then, dibber in holes 7 to 10 cms deep.

Carefully tease out the strongest of the small plants and place each into one of the planting holes.

Sprinkle the ground with granulated chicken manure pellets and water each seedling into its new home.
Stand back, and watch them grow. The planting holes will

close in time, but provide excellent little reservoirs each time you water each seedling carefully with your watering can.
