The Gardener’s Mix Lactuca sativa vigorous favorites.
Gardener’s Mix Lactuca sativa
A delicious blend of leaf lettuces chosen for mild flavor, great color and texture, and reliable garden performance. Pick small leaves early for tender “baby greens”. Fantastic for creating a colorful tossed salad or turning an ordinary sandwich into something special.
Add leaves to salads, sandwiches or use as a garnish. An excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Wash fruits, vegetables and herbs thoroughly before eating.
Perfect for home growers who want to spread their harvest so they don’t have all their lettuces ready to eat on one day! Not so useful for the commercial grower who wants to clear his crop all at once!
Our blend of distinct varieties includes old fashioned Buttercrunch types, so called Iceberg or the crisp traditional Webbs Wonderful, Cos, Loose Leafed, Red Lettuce and Batavian types. You will receive a mixed selection of varieties which will vary on the quantity of plants you buy (so you will not receive the full mix if you only order 5 plants!)
With this blend your cropping will spread over 8-9 weeks, depending on how many your plant and how quickly you eat them!
Ideal for salad leaf production as you can keep picking the young leaves and leave the plants to produce more. You will like this selection.
