Let­tuce get arty!

Ev­ery­one knows let­tuces are good for us. They are loaded with healthy nu­tri­ents and they give our burgers the es­sen­tial crunch! They are also fun to grow.

Get Cre­ative !

Let­tuces come in all sorts of colours and shapes. Use them to make beau­ti­ful pat­terns. Mix them with flow­ers or herbs, grow them in pots or in hang­ing bas­kets. You can even make a wall of let­tuces!

Let­tuces grow su­per fast in spring.

Choose from all the dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties at the gar­den cen­tre or sow your own from seed. The ‘loose-leaf’ let­tuces, such as ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘But­ter­crunch’ and ‘Red Oak’ are easy to grow. You can pick their leaves while they keep on grow­ing, so you won’t need to de­stroy your cre­ative dis­play. A great way to start your let­tuce ad­ven­ture is to buy a mixed packet of seed such as Yates Baby Combo. Yates Salad Green Fu­sion makes it easy to grow a colour­ful mix, with dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties bonded to­gether into one small pel­let.
