Growing Leeks

I have always had trouble growing leeks. When I transplant them from bought seedlings, they don't thrive and fatten up. Someone suggested I leave them in clumps and this seems to work. What is the reason they don't like being on their own?

G'day Heidi, I also have trouble growing Leeks & I also want to know why they don't like being on their own. I'll be keen to know what people suggest to you & I'll try it myself. Mate, I just wanted to let you know your not on your own !!!!!!
