 Customer Rating
A unique Iceberg x Romaine Cos that won't disappoint! After 5 years, a breeding breakthrough has finally combined the crunchy sweetness of an Iceberg Lettuce with the higher nutrition and darker leaf colour of a Romaine type. So Lettuce 'Sweet Success' looks better, tastes better and is better for you too! This tasty variety also shows superb resistance to downy mildew. The perfect choice for your salad bowl this summer.

Direct sow lettuce seeds outdoors from March to August into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½") in drills 30cm (12") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (12") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Make regular sowings for a constant supply.
Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Dry weather may cause heads of lettuce plants to bolt so watering is particularly critical during the 2 weeks before harvesting. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest lettuce when required by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife.

  1. Still going strong

    By Elizabeth Morris 25-09-2015

    Perhaps better in the ground than in pots/troughs but very easy and don't mind my taking a few leaves at a time.Respond well to transplanting and are still growing.
