Organic Lettuce - Little Gem Delight
This RHS AGM variety is a Cos lettuce with a crisp, dense heart and a delicious, sweet flavour. It has some downy mildew tolerance and a neat compact habit, making it ideal for close spacing to produce a larger crop. Height and spread: 20cm.
Sow from March to July, every 4 weeks for continuous crops. Sow seeds thinly in drills 13mm deep in rows 23cm apart, in well prepared soil in full sun. Thin plants to 2cm apart and keep well watered for the most flavoursome hearts. It can be grown in pots and growbags as well as directly in the garden.
