Have you tried growing leeks from the roots on the bottom of a mature leek? Apparently it works. I don't know whether to bury completely or leave the stem poking up above the soil.

I'd done this with spring onions and it works fine, so I would think it might work with leeks

I'd leave the cut part of the stem uncovered as it might rot if its covered in damp soil. I too have done the spring onions but haven't tried leeks myself but let us know how it goes.

I've done it with spring onions....so there is nothing to say it won't work for leeks.
