Tom Thumb

Lactuca sativa


A reliable ‘buttercrunch’ lettuce that grows quickly to form a compact, tight head. Really tasty - share a head between two. Make successive sowings so that you can enjoy a continual harvest through to winter. Watch out for slugs when seedlings are young and vulnerable. Likes a rich, free-draining soil in sun or part shade. Heirloom. Germination guaranteed.
