Lettuce – Gourmet Blend

R30.00 incl VAT

This blend of lettuce is ideal for kitchen gardeners who enjoy a variety of leaves. Own-grown lettuces taste so much better than the shop product. 

The mix includes rocket, mustard greens and an assortment of lettuces in an array of colours, shapes, textures and tastes. 

Sow thinly, at regular intervals so that you have a steady supply of leaves … if you want to have baby leaves then they should be ready in 28 days, whereas full-size will take 45 to 60 days. Simply gently remove a few leaves from each and let the plant grow on.  

Water your seedlings and plants regularly – preferably in the morning. Lettuce are particularly vulnerable to heat  – you could try giving them partial shade during the day if you find that they go from seedling to bolting … the only upside of the latter being that you’ll have pretty yellow flowers, and seeds to collect later.  

Did you know? Lettuce contains a phytonutrient called lactucarium, which is said to induce sleep, relieve pain and promote relaxation. Go lettuce!
