Thanks for the timely article. I'm enjoying my harvest of leek right now. I received the seedlings from a friend late in the summer and planted them, but having never planted leek before I wasn't sure if they would survive the winter. They were planted in raised beds and the soil froze a couple of times, but after the ground warmed up a bit I discovered they were fine! I guess they can tolerate our milder winters here in the South.

I have seen them growing in various gardens, and was amazed the first time I saw the beautiful big white flowers. They are lovely fresh or dried! They bloom in their second season if successfully wintered... and not eaten!
