What's so special about our lamb's lettuce?

The small lamb’s lettuce plants can handle the cold. It’s one of the few lettuce varieties that you can harvest in winter or spring. 
Sow them early in the spring and again at end of the summer for a winter harvest. 

Sowing and growing lamb's lettuce

Growing lamb’s lettuce is as easy as it gets. They turn into hearty, compact plants that don’t attract pests or diseases. 
Tip: If you sow in February, cover your lamb's lettuce patch at night with a crop cover like the MM-Muts to help the plants grow faster. And don’t forget to keep the soil mix nice and moist.

Harvest your lamb's lettuce plants 2 cm above the soil line. They'll grow back. After about 3 weeks you can harvest again 🙂
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are included in the Planty Gardening app.  

How do you use it?

Gebruik veldsla blad in winter- en voorjaarssalades. Het is ook erg lekker in groene smoothies. 

Knip de plantjes 2 cm boven de grond af. De plantjes groeien dan weer aan en na een week of 3 kan je nog een keer oogsten. 

Zodra de plantjes gaan bloeien, wordt het blad stugger en wat bitter. Maak er dan een stamppot van of gebruik het om mee te roerbakken.
