What’s so special about our Bibb lettuce?

Most head lettuce varieties get pretty big: only 1 would fit in your 30x30 cm patch. Our mini Bibb lettuce produces dense heads so you can let them grow and grow: 4 can fit in a single square patch.
This Bibb lettuce has a light yellow-green color and a mild, juicy taste. 

Sowing and growing

Growing this lettuce is simple: put a few seeds in a hole and keep the soil mix moist. After they come up, thin out the seedlings and leave just 1 plant per hole. Four plants fit in one square patch.

If you’re having a cold spring, you can cover the plants at night with some fleece or the MM-Muts cover to help them grow faster.

And watch out for snails: they love young lettuce.

Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app.

How do you use Bibb lettuce?

Lettuce leaves are great for salads. Also tasty in green smoothies.

When the plants bolt and start to flower, the leaves get tougher and a bit bitter. Use these older leaves in a stew, soup, stir fry, or with mashed potatoes: delicious.
