There were four types of lettuce in the punnet - La Roma Green, endive, radicchio and La Roma Red. The photos below are in that order (thanks to Luc Dedeene from http://www.plantaardig.com for helping me figure that out!).

Lettuce prefer a well drained, friable soil and should be protected from snails.

Planting Time: All year round.

Maturity: 6-8 weeks.

Uses: Salads (radicchio can also be barbequed).


6 Dec 2001: Maryanne bought this punnet of mixed lettuce seedlings, but then didn't have anywhere suitable to plant them out. After sitting on her garden bench for a few weeks, I planted them in our garden for her.
