Leek Garden - Woolly Living Wall Planter

74.99

Leeks taste like onions, except with a sweeter, creamier, more delicate flavor. Vertical gardens are not well suited for growing onions, but leeks are the perfect alternative.

These plants do take a long time to mature and are usually harvested as a late summer / early fall crop. They tolerate frost and they are very easy to grow.

More about the Planter...

Build Large Living Walls

These planters can be easily mounted close together to create living walls of almost any size, indoors and out. Calculate how many wall planters you’ll need by dividing the width of your wall area by 18” and height by 13”. Example: Four planters cover a 36” W and 26” H wall area. 

Drip Irrigation

For large installations, we recommend using automatic drip irrigation. 1/4” emitter lines fit inside the watering tank, emitting water evenly down to roots and reservoir. Supply lines hide neatly in the irrigation supply channel located on the left and right sides of every wall planter.  

More about the Plants...

  • Soil: Leeks need a deep, rich, fairly neutral soil. It should be well drained, because these plants are susceptible to rot in wet soil. It is a good idea to incorporate 2" of compost into the top 6 inches of the soil.*
  • Water: Leeks grow best in moist soil. Give the plants constant moisture and apply a mulch.*
  • Food:  Moderate nitrogen. Moderate potassium. Moderate phosphorous. Leeks aren't a very hungry plant.
  • Harvesting:  Leeks can be harvested as soon as they reach sufficient size (about 3/4" diameter), their flavor and texture is almost always good (even when they get big). When leaves have firm texture and look mature, it is time to harvest. Remember that is is better to pick it earlier than later. You can either harvest the whole head, individual leaves, or most of the heart (the part remaining will often re-sprout).*
  • Did You Know?: Leeks are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and calcium. They also contain a variety of beneficial phytochemicals, including diallyl sulfide, kaempferol and quercitin.Endive leaves contain lots of vitamins A and C, as well as some vitamin E and folate. They are also rich in minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium and phosphorus.*
