Bought some leeks

Post  johnp on 4/11/2013, 2:11 pm

Bought a set of leeks at the garden center. I have never planted leeks ( or onions) so I went to the search site and found a thread on leeks. It said to dig a big hole and put the plants in and let the plant grow to fill the hole. It seems to me that when you water the plants the hole will fill in anyway. Any ideas will help.

Yup, you got it! That's exactly the idea.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
