Lettuce - Colour Shades Mixed
This is a tantalising mixture of bronze and red shades to add colour, texture and taste to your salad bowl and side garnishes. Enjoy Lettuce Colour Shades Mixed as salad leaf and full heart crops all summer without worry, as this mix is particularly resistant to bolting. It provides an endless supply of loose-leaf lettuce in red shades.
Sow seeds from March to August. Sow seeds thinly, 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Easy to grow. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 3cm apart if full sized hearts are required, or 7.5cm apart for salad leaves. Water ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Harvest as and when required.
