Fast growing, small hearted
Butterhead. Renowned for its sweet taste. Early and quick to mature, with very compact, solid hearts.
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-July where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25cm (10") between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Thin out to 15cm (6") apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest: May-October.
This compact lettuce is ideal for gardens where space is limited, or even in large pots, if kept well watered.
