This is our favourite lettuce. Originally a French buttercrunch variety, it holds to it’s name, meaning “little cutie” this lettuce produces a small but delicious heart with great flavour.
Sow in early Spring, repeat monthly for continuous supply. Sow into trays, prick out at 4cm diagonal spacing when true leaves emerge. Transplant into fertile soil at 15cm diagonal spacing. As some seeds require heat to germinate, lettuces DO NOT germinate if soil temperature is too high. In summer we have found lettuces do not germinate in glasshouse conditions, instead we germinate them in our shadehouse.
