Here is a high quality crisp head lettuce with small compact heads which are just the right size for the home gardener. The solid, crisp and tasty heads of Lettuce Lakeland are quick to mature and slow to bolt. Recommended for harvesting in succession from spring to July. Lettuce Lakeland can also be sown in October in cold frames or the cold greenhouse for cutting in early May.
Sow seeds thinly from late winter to mid summer 6mm (¼in) deep in drills 38cm (15in) apart. A moist well drained soil which has had plenty of compost during the previous autumn is best. In very hot weather it's best to water the soil before sowing and to make sowings during the early afternoon.
Lettuce Lakeland can also be sown in the autumn in a cold greenhouse to over winter for an early spring harvest. Provide good ventilation and water carefully to avoid splashing the leaves.
Thin out gradually to 3cm (12in) apart.
Harvest when the head feels firm. Pick on the young side to ensure maximum sweetness and flavour.
