Leeks should be hilled.
Celetriac should not be hilled.
For most crops, the important thing is not to cover the growing point.

I read thé onions might not like to be hilled too much because it could cause rot if thé developping bulb is buried under wet soil.

Only potatoes need hilling to make the crop. We generally use hillers as a way to cover over weeds that grow in the row. Shallow hilling can eliminate one or two hand hoeings in most vegetable crops. Now that I use herbicides I seldom hill anymore. But it is a good option to have on hand when weed get by you... Bob.

Are there vegetables that suffer from being hilled?  Lettuce obviously wouldn't do well, but I'm wondering about others. 

Thanks,
