Plant this at almost any time of year and this crimson and jade pattern duo of lettuce will crop for months at a stretch.

Soil Type Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 20cm (8in)
Spacing 30cm (12in)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in a cool spot away from direct sun. Prepare the area for planting by digging over and incorporating well-rotted garden compost or manure to boost the nutrient content and improve soil texture. Rake the soil level and dig planting holes deep and wide enough to cover the root ball, plant young seedlings quickly so you are not exposing the roots to the sun for any longer that is necessary. Backfill and firm the soil around the plants so that if you tug the leaves, they provide enough resistance not to move. Water well after planting. Lettuces also grow well in containers, use a minimum pot depth of 15cm (6in), fill with a good quality peat-free compost and ensure good drainage.
Care Tips The plants need plenty of water, but not too much sun. Hot weather increases the likelihood of them going to seed.
Storing This keeps well in the fridge.
Harvesting March - September
Cooking Notes This makes a fantastic salad base.
