Lettuce 'Freckles Bunte' (Organic)

The most beautifully patterned butter lettuce we know. The soft, light texture of butter lettuces are a popular choice for gardeners and chefs alike.

How to grow

The best lettuces are grown fast. Grow them in beds that have just been vacated by peas or beans as all leaf crops, especially lettuce, enjoy plenty of nitrogen. Loose soil with plenty of organic matter will retain moisture and added potash will see them grow without check. Premature bolting and subsequent bitterness is usually the result of stress – this can be caused by poor transplanting techniques, damage to their shallow roots, lack of fertiliser (soil nutrients) or lack of water during hot/dry periods. Mulch well to conserve soil moisture.
