Do leeks need cold stratification?
Leek seeds in the palm of my daughter's cute pudgy little baby hand. Once the seeds fall, they need a cold stratification period before they'll break dormancy and germinate. For that reason, they're often sown in the fall, but there's no reason not to plant them anytime after June. That's how the plants do it.
How long does it take Leek to germinate?
8 to 16 days
Do leeks transplant well?
Transplanting Leeks Before transplanting your young leeks make sure you've acclimatized them to outdoor conditions by leaving them outside for increasingly longer periods over the course of one to two weeks. They're ready to transplant when they are six to eight inches (15-20cm) tall.
When should I start leeks?
Like onions, leeks started indoors need to be planted early: 10 to 12 weeks in later winter before the last frost date. Leeks can be planted outdoors about the time of the last spring frost, though they will survive light frosts even when young — and heavy frosts in the fall.
