American Flag Leek

American Flag Leek

Planting guide: Sow early in spring 1/4 inch deep in drills 12 to 15 inches apart. Thin to 5 inches apart, and draw the earth about them when cultivating. When plants have attained almost full size the earth should be drawn around them to a height of 6 or 8 inches, so as to blanch the fleshy stems.
