    The fresh lime green leaves of this light and crunchy lettuce shine out from the plot and are every bit as tasty as they look. Deeply-lobed, a little like an oak leaf, they are borne in profusion from a loose heart, so you can harvest the outer leaves over several weeks and it will continue producing more. Alternate plants with 'Red Salad Bowl' lettuces for a pretty and colourful edging in flowerbeds and decorative veg gardens.

  • Growing InstructionsSow into trays or modules in the greenhouse or on a windowsill and harden off before planting out. Or sow direct in shallow drills where they are to grow, either in containers or in the open ground, thinning seedlings to 15cm apart. Protect from slugs and cover early sowings with a cloche.

  • Sow: March-July

  • Harvest: May-September

  • Approximate quantity: 1000 seeds.
