Cultivar: Carantan leek (heirloom)

Local garden calendar recommends seeding indoors February 9 to transplant April 18. Seed packet recommends starting indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost, so that lines up since there are no recommendations listed on packet for when to transfer outside. I’m sowing seeds indoors February 23 and I’ll follow the calendar for transplanting.
