How to Grow Leeks Easily

Story at-a-glance -

  • Leeks have sulfur-containing compounds such as allicin that fight free radicals, as well kaempferol, a flavonoid shown to help fight cancer and heart disease
  • Leeks are a good source of antioxidants and vitamins A, B, C and K, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium
