Week 19: Musselburgh Leeks replanted into new raised bed.

After clearing out the pea plants, such a shame to see them go, it gave me some free space. So the Musselburgh Leeks have been lifted from their original sowing position and trimmed and planted in holes.

Make neat straight rows and then holes in the ridge for slotting in the leeks.

Once trimmed, they are carefully inserted into the holes and watered in. I have not back filled them in the hope of swelling and larger Musselburgh Leeks.

Have to see how they do as my Lyon 2 Leeks are not performing amazingly well. I have to say they’re just as big as the Musselburgh leeks and they hadn’t been moved so will have to be patient with the Leeks.
