- Long, white shafts have blue/green upright flag
- Size Potential: 12-14" shafts
- Days to Harvest: 75
Great for soups and salads. Each full bunch contains approximately 60 plants. Leeks are not daylength sensitive so as long as you keep blanching them (throwing dirt up on the shaft) they will continue to grow. Fertilize just like onions. These long 12-14" shafts are ideal for appearance and flavor. Free growing guide included. Plant 4-5" deep.

- Excellent plants

I ordered 1 bunch last year and filled two small beds. The leeks grew very well and were delicious! I planted in mid-April (a bit late for my area) and harvested from October through January when the snow started. The remainder froze well. Fun and easy to grow, and I just placed another order for this year! Waltham, Ma
- Growing more this year!

Lancelot leeks from Dixondale were perfect. They were huge, and every one grew well. We have eaten all of them by February and will plant many more this year. See my pictures at FB Plants & Poultry.
- These are great!

I have raised beds with very clay, rocky soil in Massachusetts. I put two wheelbarrows' worth of chicken coop sweepings into a 4 x 8 bed and put the leeks in with lettuce between the rows, and then ignored them all summer. I weeded them maybe twice. Come late summer-early fall when all the lettuce was harvested and the weeds started to die back, I had a whole bunch of leeks, more than I could use. I pulled the fattest ones for the root cellar and to eat, and left the smaller ones to overwinter. Just dug a few up from 10" of snow in the garden, and they are fine!
- Great Experience!

I grew leeks for the 1st time in 2012 and the Lancelot Leeks performed near perfect! I followed the directions and "Voila"....extra large leeks by fall!

I've grown these for several years and am always amazed at how well they do and how long they last in the ground. Great flavor. San Antonio, Tx
- 2010 Lancelot Leeks

Last year was a difficult year for us for onions. The plants arrived wet and ended up getting diseased. We pretty much wrote off everything, except the Lancelot Leeks. They turned out marvelous. I will plant twice as many leeks this year.

I've grown these for a few years and have had excellent results, mainly because they are a good variety and I do plant them in a trench & keep them well weeded & watered WISCONSIN
- good results with leeks

I planted leeks for the first time in my vegetable garden in central Arkansas in 2009. I feared this vegetable would not do well in the hot climate in this part of the country, but with good watering I had great results with the dixondale leeks. Actually I still have some in the garden from the 2009 planting and they taste delicious. Most of the leeks I harvested were less than 2 inch thick but tall. I submitted Dixondale leeks at the county fair and won a blue ribbon. Locals were surprised I could grow leeks in this part of the country. They just never tried.
- Gone to seed 2009

Virtually every plant went to seed in 2009. Friends had similar results.
- Bad leeks for 2009
- posted by Julia Brabenec on 2009-11-13 22:39:12
After growing your leeks for many years and always satisfied with their size and quality, this year's crop was very disappointing. At least 80 percent went to seed and were virtually unusable. I hesitate ordering them again, but since I was assured that they would be replaced free of charge in 2010, I will most likely try again. Otherwise, I have been very satisfied with Dixondale's onion plants every year since I began ordering.

I tried these a few years ago, from Dixondale. I planted them in compost ammended decomposed granite soil. I hilled them up as they grew. The final product was of excellent quality. I planted them in November and harvested them spring through early summer.
- longest white shank

The Lancelot Leeks may not be the fattest, but they have the longest white shank of any variety I've grown. Starting with the Dixondale plants gives me the headstart I need to mature these leeks in time for fall market sales in Arkansas.
