Lettuce 'Valmaine' (Romaine/Cut And Come Again)

Lactuca sativa

Half-hardy Annual

If left to mature, this large variety will produce conical heads with a crunchy, crisp texture. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 25cm (10”).

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.
