My Welsh Wonder leeks are always skinny looking things..an occasional .two-finger thickness is the best we ever get. I fertilize them and they get plenty of water and are in sandy neutral soil We look at the produce in the stores and despair :-( I shall appreciate any suggestions Cheerio.. terry

I would suggest an autumn planting. Maybe build your soil up with compost and manures 2-3 mths before planting. Make sure it is all rotted into the soil by plant time. Hard to beat the commercial people, they are spot on with fertiliser requirements and watering. We kind of half guess it.
