'Blue Solaise'  

Wide, deep blue-blue-green leaves with 4-6" stems 2-3" or more in diameter. Cold weather is when these leeks excel, and it brings out an intense violet hue in many of the plants. This is a 19th century heirloom cultivar from France, handed on to us by Village Farm in Ashland, Oregon, three years ago. Such is the pace of biennial seeds. Makes a great soup with parsley and potatoes. Sow seed in flats or nursery beds in February to get the largest leeks. Nursery beds are thickly sown like green onions, then transplanted in early summer at about 6" apart in rows 16" or more apart. Hilling up the plants makes a longer leek with more blanched stem, and controls weeds at the same time.
