Lettuce Marvel of Four Seasons Seeds
Info: `Marvel of Four Seasons` is a butter-head lettuce that is a true delight as it is truly beautiful and tasty as well. Also known as `Merveille des Quatre Saisons` this French lettuce is famous for its signature butter-head shape boasting the appearance of a bibb-type rosette with an array of beautiful colours ranging in bronze, gold, red and green and tightly folded green hearts. With its ability to be harvested in extended seasons the "four seasons" will thrive in a range of climates, the best time for sowing is spring and autumn.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow outdoors from mid March to mid September. Seed depth 6 - 12 mm in short rows about 20 - 30 cm apart. When the seedlings are about 2cm tall, thin them out. A rich soil is excellent for lettuce, but the crop will also do well in average garden soil. Fertilize the soil with compost or horn meal before sowing. Watering is essential, the plants need almost constantly moist ground as dry soil will cause the plants to put their energy into producing flowers.
