Half hardy Annual
Description – All-American Gold Medal winner. Salad Bowl Lettuce is large, medium-green, slow bolting, non-heading and decidedly tender. Don’t pull the whole plants – be selective – go down the row choosing only the largest, tenderest leaves. This way Salad Bowl Lettuce will continue to replace itself the whole season
Sowing – Sow seeds thinly from spring to mid summer 6mm (¼in) deep in drills 23cm (9in) apart. A moist well drained fertile soil which has had plenty of compost dug in the previous autumn is best. In very hot weather it is best to water the soil before sowing and sow during the early afternoon.
Growing – Thin out gradually to 23cm (9in) apart.
Harvest – July to September
