On page 2 of the article about leeks, I'm confused. It says to start blanching mid autumn. This can't be right can it?
I haven't read the article you refer too, I start blanching the leeks as they grow, don't know if it is the right way, but our leeks are always long and succulent, measuring up to 12 inches long (base)
as the leeks grow up keep earthing them up or get some form of tube like toilet roll inner & put it over them
