Lettuce - Multired & Multigreen
This is a superb modern variety with a short crown to produce more leaves. Harvesting and cleaning is easy, and one cut is enough to release all the leaves.
Sow outdoors thinly, from March to July where they are to crop, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, moisture-retentive soil, which has already been watered. Allow 25cm between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Thin out to 15cm apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings, made every two to three weeks, will ensure a continuous supply. Harvest from June to October.
