The outer leaves have a slight bitterness, while the pale hearts are sweet and tender. Like all lettuce, it makes a great space saving crop for even the smallest of gardens.

How to Grow

T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to planting outdoors.

Grow lettuce in well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Space plants 23cm (9") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects.

More Info
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.
