An outstanding Iceberg lettuce Lettuce Antartica produces dense hearts with plenty of crunchy flavour making it ideal for summer salads and it will extend your cropping season well into autumn. With good resistance to tipburn boling and mildew this superb variety stands well in good condition. Sowing months: Mar-AugPosition: Sun or semi-shadeHeight: 20cmSpread: 30cmDirect sow lettuce seeds outdoors from March to August into well prepared fertile moist soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm in drills 30cm apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle thin out seedlings to 30cm apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Make regular sowings for a constant supply. Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Dry weather may cause heads of lettuce plants to bolt so watering is particularly critical during the 2 weeks before harvesting. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest lettuce when required by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife. Quantity: 1 packet of 250 seeds
