Organic Lettuce Cos Seeds - Little Gem
Lettuces are super easy to grow and small enough to grow on your windowsill. They are perfect for growing with little children as they grow quickly and they can pick individual leaves off the plant themselves. A well-loved. small, fast maturing lettuce with crisp leaves and a sweet flavour, Little Gem can be grown outdoors throughout the growing season and also in early autumn and winter under cloches. Sowing a few seeds at fortnightly intervals ensures you get a regular supply, rather than 20 lettuce all ready to eat at the same time!
