Vegetables

Lettuce 'Great Lakes'

Is a large, solid-hearted variety, crisp and sweet. Endures summer heat without running to seed. A must for summer salads.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Directly into growing position, or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Transplant when 3-4cm high.

Care

Plant in a well-drained, sunny position adding Yates Garden Lime and Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser to the soil at time of planting. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser weekly. Successive plantings give best results. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem. Water at soil level, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease.
