A traditional English favourite, this reliable iceberg lettuce has large crumpled outer leaves and a robust centre of crisp white leaf. Stands well in hot weather, is slow to bolt, and copes well whether the summer is wet or dry.
Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually, enjoying the thinnings in an early salad or two. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and autumn. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
