Delft Perpetual Leek
Selected out of the heirloom Delft leek, these have a high proportion of plants that form a cluster of new shoots around the mother plant. When the mother plant flowers and dies, the offshoots go on to make mother plants themselves. A real "permaculture leek" if harvested by carefully cutting the leek above the root or allowing unharvested leeks to flower before cutting back. Leeks are more disease free than onions, providing reliable winter food. Frank Morton's quick and careful eye spotted and selected these out of the heirloom "Delft" leek. A great new possibility for year-round gardens. Very rare. 20 seeds.
