Leek (Allium ampeloprasum)

June 12. 2012 Raining here in the capital city. 

Update on the Leek. Few have rotten, there are few that develop leaves and I manage to plant them in the ground. Here is the picture of a Leek that survive, this is in a 3 gallon spot.

Leek - starting to root or rot in water? What is your prediction?

This is a picture of a Leek - I cooked the stems. And the roots, I just don't like to throw it, so maybe this will root or rot in water? Time will tell.

If it does root, then here is a smart way of starting your leeks, aside from seeds.

April 23-30. In 7 days, this is the growth of the Leek roots. It looks promising.

Looks like it is rooting. Maybe I will pot one up and see what happens?

  1. Wait... you cooked them first? They won't root if they've been cooked.
