Lactuca sativa'Lollo Rossa'
Lettuce 'Lollo Rossa' - 12 per pack
Lactuca sativa (Lettuce) 'Lollo Rossa' is 'loose-leaf' variety with crisp, curled leaves tinged with red, which makes it ornamental as well as good to eat. Try it in borders among roses or bedding plants! This type of lettuce does not produce a heart and is intended to be picked like spinach, providing leaves over several weeks. Plant 15cm apart in well-drained, humus-rich soil, in sun or partial shade. Provide cloche or cold frame protection if planting when there is danger of spring frosts. Protect from slugs. Water well in dry weather. Always water in the morning up to midday. Watering late in the day increases the risk of rotting. RHS Award of Garden Merit. British nursery grown.
