Mr Fothergill’s Lettuce Gourmet Mixed Seeds
€3.20 “Price excl. VAT: €3.20”
Superb tasty mix of different shapes and colours. Attractive in patio containers and in the garden.
Outdoors: sow thinly April-August where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into prepared, fertile soil, which has been watered. For cut and come again baby leaves, allow 15cm (6″) between rows, or sow thinly, directly into compost in 25cm (10″) pots with drainage holes. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. No further thinning should be necessary. Keep moist. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply of leaves. Pick a few from each plant when approx. 10cm (4″) high. They will regrow for up to 4 ‘cuts.’ Harvest: April-October. For mature lettuces, allow 25cm (10″) between rows and thin to 20cm (8″) apart. Harvest whole plants from May.
