Leeks indoors...do I blanch now? Trim?
If anyone can help me, I would like to have leeks this year... tried it once before and never got more than pencil thin ones...
I read here that for starting them indoors under fluorescents, I should trim the green and keep them trimmed to about 3 inches high... So should I trim the tiny hairlike seedlings I have now?
And what about blanching? Mine are sprouted in peat pellets... do I need to start piling soil around the green shoots now, or does that wait until transplanting outdoors?
Thanks for any help... I have searched for this info, and all I can find is that blanching should be done, but not when it should be begun when leeks are grown from seed indoors.
