A quick maturing semi-cos lettuce. The crisp leaves have a delicious sweet flavour. Sow in the open in spring and summer and in the early autumn for winter use under cloches. Compact plants can be spaced 15cm apart. Resistant to root aphid. 440 seeds.
Crops 10–14 weeks from sowing. Sow thinly outdoors from late March until July (earlier crops can be obtained by sowing indoors from February onwards and planting out) at fortnightly intervals to ensure a regular supply. Sow in rows 30cm apart and 1.25cm deep and thin the plants to 23–30cm apart. For early cropping from overwintered lettuce sow seed outdoors late August-early September. For growing in a greenhouse or polytunnel during winter choose a specially selected Winter/Spring variety.
Plant: February to August
