A heading type of lettuce - although best to be picked leaf by leaf - that is large, tender and good for salads. Not bitter, it will please fussy salad eaters, and is not fussy itself with growing requirements. It copes well in many soil types and in partially shaded spaces. Its main requirement is water.

Position: Full sun, but will tolerate some shade.

Soil: Prepare with compost and well-rotted manure and allow the soil to settle for 1-2 weeks before planting. Fresh manure has a tendency to burn younger lettuce seedlings, so incorporating a green manure in your soil as part of the preparation is also ideal.

Soil pH Level: 6.5-7.5

How to Plant: Use a free draining soil well integrated with compost or good quality potting mix when growing in pots. Plant in rows or scatter sow - depending on what sort of person you are - keeping them well hydrated throughout their lifetime. Will appreciate a fortnightly tonic of liquid seaweed fertiliser.

Spacing: 15-20cm

Depth: 0.5-1cm

What to plant in: Pot / Wall Garden / Ground

Companion Plants: Radish, Bean, Carrot

Approximate no. of seeds: 200

Note: Seeds are sourced locally and in small batches to ensure they remain at their maximum viability for germination. Seeds viable for 5+ years when stored correctly in a cool, dry, dark place.

**Please note seeds are not available for shipping to WA**
