Lettuce Maureen

Lettuce Maureen. This compact Cos lettuce is shows excellent uniformity and holds an RHS AGM. Lettuce ‘Maureen’ is a Little Gem selection with smoother, darker leaves that surround tight, pale yellow hearts. The neat heads are quick to mature, showing good tolerance to bolting in hot weather, and resisting disease during wetter summers. Lettuce ‘Maureen’ is ideal for successional sowings and well suited to cropping in containers and window boxes where space is limited.

Height and spread: 20cm (8″)

Sow
March – August

Harvest
June – October

How to sow
Direct 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 (1/2″) in drills 30cm (12″) apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (12″) apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Make regular sowings for a constant supply.

Companion planting
Try growing kale with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
