Reviewed 16th June 2014 by Wintersleap

I'm not sure if this is exactly the same mix as I bought last year - my packet just says Winter Leaf selection, but it includes some of the same varieties. I sowed in September, and keeping row covered with a bog standard plastic cloche over the winter, I was able to pick leaves, either to supplement a bought lettuce or by April and into late May, to make a complete salad which tasted delicious and looked fantastic. In the end I probably picked it to death, by which time spring sown lettuces were nearly ready so it didn't matter.
