Lettuce Antartica Thompson & Morgan

£2.99

The ‘Antartica’ is a superb iceberg lettuce. With an extended cropping season that will grow well into the autumn. They have dense hearts that are crisp and crunchy, and a flavour that refreshing in late summer salads. With good resistance to tipburn, boiling and mildew this variety definitely stands in good stead within a salad garden.

Directly sow your seeds outdoors from March until August with well prepared, fertile and moist soil. Choose a location with full sun or semi shade. Sow thinly at a depth of 1cm in drills of 30cm apart. Be sure to rake you soil to a fine tilth before planting. When large enough to handle, thin out your seedlings to 30cm apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece, as this will prevent any attack from birds or insects. Make regular sowings and you will be able to enjoy your crop continuously.

Height: 20cm

Spread: 30cm

Harvest Time: June – October
