Fill your salad bowl all summer long with fresh and healthy home-grown leaves . Quick and easy to grow, simply direct sow Lettuce ‘Kyrio’ seeds straight into rows on the veg plot or into containers from spring onwards for a cropping season which continues right up until late autumn. This loose ‘salad bowl’ type lettuce has tasty, thick leaves which maintain their freshness well after picking. Great for salads and attractive as a garnish. Shows an excellent level of resistance to downy mildew and lettuce leaf aphid. Height: 15cm (6”). Spread: 15cm (6”).


1 packet (250 seeds) (KA9974)

Direct sow lettuce seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2”) in drills 30cm (12") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (12") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Make regular sowings for a constant supply.
Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest lettuce when required by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife. Perfect for sandwiches and salads. The perfect garnishing lettuce. The dark green leaves of lettuce are a good source of betacarotene and vitamin A.
