Common names

Description

Lactuca perennis (Blue lettuce). A perennial from South Europe. Shade the young plants in hot weather and feed at intervals with weak liquid manure.

Cultivation

They will grow in any moist but well-drained soil with full sun or partial-shade. You can propagate from seed. For tender, succulent leaves it is important that there is no check in growth, so ensure the soil remains moist. Shade the young plants in hot weather and feed at intervals with weak liquid manure.
