Lettuce – Red Oakleaf
Red Oakleaf lettuce is a stunning colour and flavour addition to the salad bowl. Its loose leaf structure and tender leaves are sweet with a spicy bite. Pick a few leaves at a time or fill the whole salad bowl with a large head.
Sow 3mm deep; Plant spacing at 20cm apart; Sow rows at 25-30cm apart; Germination period between 6-10 days; Soil temperatures between 8˚C and 27˚C; Harvest time approx. 8-12 weeks.
Lettuce prefers cooler growing conditions in well-drained, loose soil with consistent water. Needs daily water and shade in warmer weather to prevent a bitter flavour and bolting to seed.Seed quantity - 100
