Crisp and flavoursome glossy red outer leaves enclose this dense hearted romaine-type lettuce. Neat and compact, Lettuce ’Moonred’ is the ideal choice for growing in more confined spaces, including window boxes and patio containers as well as making neat rows on the allotment. The attractive and nutritious leaves are the perfect addition to sandwiches or as part of a refreshing, mixed salad. Easy to grow, sow throughout the spring and early summer months for a long lasting crop which continues through to late autumn. Height: 20cm (8”). Spread: 15cm (6”).


1 packet (200 seeds) (KA9981)

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.

High downy mildew resistance. A lettuce so sweet that it does not even need dressing - and it’ll add colour to the salad bowl! Most lettuces are good sources of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein and vitamin C, as well as vitamin K and folic acid.
