Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

American Flag Leek Seeds
Allium ampeloprasum (105 days) Originated around 1870. Also called "Giant Musselburh" or "Scotch Flag". Leeks date back to the time of the Ancient Egyptians. Their popularity has grown through many cultures since then.
Leeks create a tasty pearl-white bulb with huge green leaves. They have a delicate onion flavor that makes them a favorite in soups, stews and salads. Perfect for the home gardener and market grower.
Stems grow 10-15" long and about 2-3" in diameter. Leek seeds should be planted indoors 50 to 60 days before the last frost. Very hardy; overwinters well in most regions doing well in both southern and northern states.
Leeks can also be planted directly in the garden as soon as the soil can be worked. Leeks like long sunny days to grow big. Leeks have few pests or diseases. Hilling your leeks will encourage longer shanks.
