Description

As a massive salad consumer, I know my lettuce! This cropped so quickly and for such a long time in our trial last year, it has become one of our new must-haves. With crunchy stems and sweet-tasting leaves, it’s perfect grown as a cut-and-come-again, harvesting just a few outer leaves as and when you want them, leaving the heart intact to produce more.

Care Tips

The plants need plenty of water, but not too much sun. Hot weather increases the likelihood of them going to seed.
