Description Sowing Delivery
Romaine Lettuce 'Valmaine' is ideal for sowing as a 'cut and come again' crop, remaining productive throughout the season with regular cropping and successive sowings. Its sweet flavour and fleshy texture make it perfect for adding to salads and sandwiches, especially as the young leaves have no bitterness. If left to mature, this large variety will produce conical heads with a crunchy, crisp texture. Height: 30cm (12”). Spread: 25cm (10”).

Sowing Months Harvest Months
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 (1/2") 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.
