Thompson & Morgan Lettuce Lollo RossaAsk a Question
An excellently flavoured Italian lettuce of the type used in salads and also in many other dishes as a tasty garnish. Lettuce Continental Looseleaf Lollo Rossa is compact, non hearting with a rosette of finely frilled leaves with deep red edge. Lollo Rossa is very easy to grow and attractive in gardens, tubs, containers etc and in the salad.
Sow seeds thinly from spring to mid summer 6mm (¼in) deep in drills 23cm (9in) apart. A moist, well drained, fertile soil which has had plenty of compost dug in the previous autumn is best. In very hot weather it is best to water the soil before sowing and sow during the early afternoon.
Thin out gradually to 23cm (9in) apart.
To harvest don't pull the whole plant - be selective - go down the row choosing only the largest, tenderest leaves. This way it will continue to replace itself the whole season.
