Winter Lettuce Plant Collection
A good range of tastes and textures to grow over winter to give fresh lettuce early next season. 40 lettuce plants, 10 of each variety:
Winter Gem (Cos) - If you miss your Little Gems (our most popular lettuce by seed) then you'll want lettuce Winter Gem. Lettuce Winter Gem is perfect for an unheated greenhouse/spring harvest of sweet, crunchy heads. Plus it has good disease resistance.
Valdor (Butterhead) - Lettuce Valdor is one of the best winter hardy lettuces. You can expect solid heads of dark green, from this butterhead lettuce which can be cut in spring from these plants - protect outdoor lettuce plantings with fleece.
Winter Density (Cos) - Lettuce Winder Density is the classic of winter lettuces. Winter Density is larger than Little Gem and packs a pleasing flavour alongside bigger size. A splendid cos lettuce, it remains our most popular winter lettuce variety.
Navara (Butterhead) - Lettuce Navara is a shiny dark red oakleaf variety which produces medium sized heads on compact lettuce plants. Navara internal lettuce leaves are a rich green, plus they are resistant to lettuce leaf aphid and Downy Mildew.
