Great mix of green and red baby leaf lettuce, coming in a 4m tape. Maturing in just 35-50 days, these varieties provide juicy, crisp, sweet flavour packed with great freshness. Perfect for braising mixes, salads, side dishes and garnishes. Easy to plant with basic care. Can be grown in long trays, pots, containers. Seed tape can be cut to desired length and planted accordingly.
Seeds in a tape are easier to plant, care and the harvest is neater compare to the lose seeds. Also, all plants mature at the same time. The seeds are already correctly spaced, so the seedlings do not crowd. Also, you do not need to worry about planting them too deep, all will be at the same depth. Plants grown from the tape also mature and can be harvested at the same time. Tape is biodegradable, which will not cause any damage to the plant or the environment. Pre-spacing the seeds means no over-sowing and no thinning out, plus the lightweight tape stops birds eating your freshly sown seeds.
Growing: year round in tropical climate. To plant them, simply lay down the seed tape in a straight line of a well-drained, fertile soil and gently cover it with soil. You can use as much tape, as you desire, as it can be nicely teared at the desired length. Water regularly to make sure the soil is moist but not wet. After the seedlings emerge, just care for them like planting the seeds in a usual way.
Planting season: Early spring, starting from transplants four weeks prior the last frost date or direct seeding once the soil can be worked. Fall, sowing seeds two months prior first expected frost for full size and up until frost for baby leaf.
Soil: Well drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, with a pH 6-7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil.
Sun: full sun/partial shade;
Moisture: regular watering to keep the soil moist (not wet).
Fertlizing: regular fertilisng with organic fertiliser recommended for healthy growth and strong root system.
