Britain’s best loved lettuce appropriately named! Quick to mature and with an especially fine, sweet flavour and crunchy texture. Sweet crispy, compact heads, very easy to grow for tasty nutritious salads.
Seed Tapes and Mats are really ingenious idea, and although a fairly recent innovation they are proving to be very popular amongst gardeners of all ages. Using a unique production process, the highest quality seed is spaced between two layers of specialised paper which is then crimped at the edges to form a tape.
How does it work?
The seed is equally spaced along the tape which reduces the need for thinning, saving you time, effort and a potentially sore back! They are much easier to handle than tiny, fiddly seeds
and can be cut to a size to suit your plot. Simply prepare your soil as you would for any seed bed, make a shallow drill, lay down your tape watering it as you go along (this stops the tape
blowing around and helps breakdown the paper), cover with a thin layer of dark compost and water in well.
