Ican Lettuce Trendsetter

A cos type lettuce made popular by restaurant chefs. Easy to grow, space-saving, green well-filled crisp hearts that hold well. Vigorous, fast-maturing, with good tolerance to "bolting", and resistance to downy mildew, sclerotinia, and now aphids. The best variety available - compare the results with others and experience for yourself.

How to Sow
Choose a sheltered well-drained site in full sun. Best sown in trays or punnets at a depth of 1cm and thin to 3cm spacing. Transplant into rows 30cm apart at 25cm spacings where they are to grow in a prepared garden bed or container to which lime and Ican Organic Vegetable Food have been added. Sow seeds 1cm deep, 20cm apart in rows 30cm apart, or 5 plants in a 35cm pot.

Growing Care
Keep moist but not wet during germination and emergence. Protect young seedlings with slug pellets. If leaves are yellow, feed with Ican Organic Vegetable Food or Ican Fast Food. Water well in dry periods.

Tips
Sow few and often (every 3 weeks) and commence harvest as soon as a heart is formed.
