LETTUCE

VEGETABLE SEEDS

(Lactuca sativa).
Lettuce need to be sown at recommended times for best results. Heavy feeding and constant watering is required. Mulch, particularly in hot weather. High soil temperatures can cause seed dormancy, which may be broken by placing the seed in a refrigerator for 72 hours before sowing. Sow 1 cm. deep, thinning or transplanting as suggested. Summer sowings of all types are risky in tropical areas. 900 s/g

Leaf Lettuce are ideal for early Spring and late Summer sowing. By picking a few leaves at a time, a row can give fresh leaves for 2 months from a single sowing. Far better than the Iceberg types which mature over a concentrated period.

All our lettuce seed is “raw”, except for our pelleted Mini Cos.
