Unrivalled in its colour and flavour, Gabriella lettuce is a loose-leaf butterhead lettuce that is heat resistant and slow to bolt, making it perfect for warmer regions of Australia, and also an excellent variety for growing and sowing throughout spring and summer. Ready to pick in just 45-50 days, sow seed every 2-3 weeks to ensure a continuous crop.
Lettuce is an annual crop with varying bolting times depending on sowing and variety. Seeds can be directly sown or transplanted from punnets. Sow seeds on the soil surface for proper germination. It thrives in full sun during mild weather or partial shade during hot months. Stagger sowings for a continuous harvest. Protect from snails and water regularly. Harvest young leaves to avoid bitterness. Head lettuce can be cut at the soil line, while loose leaf varieties can be gradually harvested.
