Lettuce - Arctic King
Arctic King is a very hardy butterhead type for growing outside during the winter. It boasts compact bright green heads. This type can be brought on a few weeks earlier by placing cloches over the crop in January or February.
Sow the seed from August to September. Sow seeds direct into growing site thinly along rows, 1.5cm deep, spaced 30cm apart . Later sowings can be made in a cold frame. Thin seedlings once large enough to handle to 30cm apart. In colder areas some protection with cloches may be required. Cold frame sowings can be transplanted to the growing site in spring, spaced as above.
