Lettuce - Red Salad Bowl
Red Salad Bowl is sometimes referred to as an Oak leaf type. It produces large heads made up of a mass of dark red, serrated leaves for individual picking.
Sow the seed from February to July. Sowings can be made under glass in pots or trays. Keep at a temperature of 15-20C and lightly cover seeds with sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Alternatively sow seeds from April thinly along rows 1.5cm deep and 30cm apart direct in the vegetable plot. Sowings made under glass can be pricked out into individual pots or module trays and grown on until ready to harden off and plant out into the vegetable plot. Seedlings sown direct outside can be thinned once large enough to handle to 30cm (12in) apart. Water well during hot dry spells.
