Half hardy Annual
Description – A reliable, simple, productive and space-saving method which can be tailored to your weekly requirements. Early sowings of Lettuce Valamaine should mature in about 60 days, mid-season sowings in about 40 days. Lettuce Valamaine is specially chosen because the young leaves have no bitterness.
Sowing – For a continuous supply sow seeds at 7 day intervals from early April to mid May and again during August. Sow seeds 1cm (½in) deep in rows 13cm (5in) apart, allowing approximately 14-16 seeds per foot of row.
Growing – Adjust row lengths to suit your family’s need. Harvest when the leaves have reached a satisfactory size leaving 1-2½cm (½-1in) of stem. Clear all surface rubbish, water, and growth will commence in one to two weeks.
Harvest – June to September
