Lettuce 'Little Gem Pearl' / A Cos Lettuce / Seeds

A high quality variety of Cos Lettuce.  Each lettuce has a well filled heart and grows to a height of about 15-20cm.  Plants are mildew resistant.  These have a good sweet flavour and are justifiably popular.


Lettuce grows best in composted well drained soil, with regular watering and not too sunny a position in midsummer. 


Pack of approx 1000 small seeds.  Sow from early spring to August, every two weeks for a regular harvest.  Early spring sowings are best done in a greenhouse in peat pots or modules.  Later sowings can be done directly into the ground or into containers.  Lettuces are harvested around three months from sowing.  
Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Grow & Harvest Protect plants from slugs and snails.  Harvest the Lettuces when they become big enough to eat, generally three months from sowing.
