What's so special about our lettuce?

Lettuce varieties that don't grow heads are loose leaf lettuces. When harvesting, you pick the outer leaf and leave the center, so the plant continues to grow. This extends the plant’s life, and you can harvest for a long time.

Our lettuce is a nice mix: one produces tender yellow-green leaves and the other gives you firmer leaves with a red tint.

Sowing and growing

Growing this lettuce is simple: put a few seeds in each hole and keep the soil mix moist. After they come up, thin out the seedlings and leave just 1 plant per hole. 4 plants fit in 1 square patch. 
 
If you’re having a cold spring, you can cover the plants at night with some fleece or the MM-Muts crop cover to help them grow faster. 
 
And watch out for snails: they love young lettuce. 
 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Garden app. 

How do you use lettuce?

Lettuce leaves are great for salads. They’re also tasty in green smoothies. 
 
Start harvesting when the leaves are about 10 cm long. If you leave the center of the plant alone, it’ll produce new leaves. This extends your growing season 🙂
 
Once the plants start to bolt flower, the leaves get tougher and a bit bitter. Use the older leaves in a stew, soup, stir fry or mashed potatoes: yum.
