Little Gem Lettuce
A delightful miniature Romaine-style lettuce that’s fun and easy to grow. Savoyed outer leaves hide dense, blanched hearts. Heads are 4″ across and 4-6″ in height when mature.
Sow Little Gem Lettuce seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before transplanting outdoors or or sow directly as soon as soil is workable. Harden seedlings 2-3 days before setting out. Choose fertile, well-draining rich soil and keep moist. Plants benefit from light shade during hot summer afternoons.
