An unusual number of our leeks have started to bolt, presumably because of the strange growing season, and so Mg has decided to lift the large ones early and freeze them. What is particularly unusual is that a few of the bolted ones have started to produce bulbils at the base.
The first picture shows a double leek, one with bulbils and a few 'bits' that have grown from bulbils. The second picture is a close up of the bulbils. I will pot up the bulbils and see if they produce anything but I have never seen this before. Has anyone else?
