Description

Henderson's Black Seeded Simpson (to give its full name) with sweet and tender, light yellow-green leaves, can be used as an early main crop lettuce, or as a cut and come again baby leaf. This old stand-by is quite bolt-resistant, and given really nitrogen-rich soil, it can get huge. Sow early spring (when the ground has warmed up) to early summer and late summer for autumn harvest. Has performed well in poor soil, grow bags and even in the shade. R.H.S. 'AGM' Award Winner.

Sowing Advice

Sow seed on soil surface and barely cover. Do not allow seedbed to get really dry. Thin gradually. In cooler climates lettuce may be grown straight through the summer, as well as spring and fall. Rich, moist soil is necessary. Plants may benefit from a few hours of afternoon shade in hottest summer weather.
