Had a busy couple of afternoons in the greenhouse this weekend. On Saturday afternoon I re potted my biggest leeks into 2 ltr pots and also put on their first collars. These are 5 inch long pipe insulation,. This is put on to encourage the leeks to stretch. At 5 inch the collar is about 2 inches above the button. The tallest of these leeks is about 25 inches to the tip of its flag leave.
I also set up my new light which allows me to give more light to all my plants. On Sunday I re potted the leeks I got from Dave Metcalfe. These are now in ltr pots and are roughly 13 to 16 inches to the flag leaf and the barrels are only 2 inch long.
"Globo" Onions Germination at last. I'll leave them in the cells for a while yet,
