Organic Brown-Goldring-Romaine Lettuce Seeds
Organic Brown-Goldring-Romaine seeds will produce one of the least appreciated but best flavoured lettuce varieties. People who try this wonderful lettuce rave about it but the trick is to get them to try it in the first place. Brown outer leaves wrap golden hearts that are crunchy and juicy. Perfect for mid-summer salads.
Lettuce prefers cool conditions and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. Best growth occurs at 16-18 degrees Celsius. Sow seed .3 cm deep, firm soil and cover lightly as some light is required for germination. Sow indoors 3-4 weeks before your transplant date. Outdoors space plants 21 cm apart in rows 30-45 cm apart. Continue to sow every 3 weeks throughout the season for a continuous supply of fresh greens. Many lettuce varieties will not germinate at temperatures over 24 degrees Celsius. Sow seed in a shaded location mid-summer. Some varieties do well in the unheated winter greenhouse.
