Lettuce Little Gem Bumper Seed Pack – Mr Fothergills
Fantastic, sweet flavour, from this semi-cos lettuce. Small, tight heads with a crisp texture. A good source of vitamin A and C.
A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
Recommended by Keith Blundell (Gibside head gardener) in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition):
“Ideal for a small garden or window box, as it can be sown throughout the year and harvested as either cut-and-come-again or a fully grown lettuce. It can also be grown under cloches to extend the season.”
Also recommended by Alan Titchmarsh
Twin pack – Average 1250 seeds per packet
Sow & Grow:
Sow outdoors thinly where they are to crop, 1.5cm (1/2”) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 25cm (10”) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Thin out to 15cm (6”) apart. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings made every two to three weeks will ensure a continuous supply.
