LETTUCE – Little Gem Cos

(300 seeds)

$3.95

(3 customer reviews)

Firm mini-lettuce heads with lots of crunch and flavour.

An early maturing head lettuce with compact, slightly elongated heads and a great flavour. Nothing tastes as good as lettuce straight from the garden, and thanks to the smaller head size, you'll be able to use the whole head quickly. Winner of the Award of Garden Merit, you'll find that this lettuce has loads of merit in the kitchen too!

How to Sow

Because the small seeds have to be sown quite shallowly, it will be easier to keep seeds moist during germination if sown in trays. Alternatively, sow a few seeds in planting stations at the correct spacing and thin after germination. Sprinkle a little loose soil over the seeds till they are no longer visible and keep moist.

How to Harvest

Pick your lettuce once the heads are firm and well formed. If you delay, the plants will bolt. To extend your harvest, stagger sowing.
