I intend to grow several varieties of leek in order to save seed from the best specimens, and over time 'clean-up' certain varieties that may have strayed from former glory.

As I understand it, leeks are sown in the spring in order to put on decent size for the table, and flower in their second year.

Is it possible to bypass a year and get the leeks to bolt in their first summer, by sowing in the preceding autumn?

Cheers!

Hi all! Sorry if this shouldn't be on here (if anyone could point me to the right direction or anywhere else I could try also) but I promised my cousin to give her a hand with gathering research. For her GCSE in Design and Technology she has chosen to focus her assignment on allotments and needs some data to work from and inform her next steps.
 
We'd both highly appreciate it if you could fill out this short questionnaire, it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes!

In November I will be moving some Gooseberries because it is too shady for them.  According to the Bumblebees  conservation trust, wild strawberries are a good plant for bumblebees in shade.  Any ideas on how to grow these? (I am hoping to eat them as well).
I have noticed that snowdrops in this area take 3 weeks longer to flower than in full sun, it is that shady.

In November I will be moving some Gooseberries because it is too shady for them.  According to the Bumblebees  conservation trust, comfrey is a good plant for bumblebees in shade but everything I can find on how to grow comfrey says it needs good sun.
Can it cope with heavy shade?  What is the best way to grow it?
