Planting+
Cos lettuce seed requires no prior treatment. Sow a new row of lettuce every 3 weeks or so and you will always have fresh lettuce to hand.
Care+
Water extra in periods of drought, keep the bed free of weeds and your lettuce will then grow well. Lettuce enjoys a well-fertilised soil so if you want them to grow big and healthy, add a good fertiliser to the watering can regularly.
Specifics+
Cos, or Romaine Lettuce has tasty, tender leaves, because of its shape the light can barely, or even not at all, reach the heart of the plant. Some varieties need a bit of help - they need to be tied up to keep the centres dark. Nowadays, varieties have been developed that form a dense head of lettuce that no longer needs to be tied. Cos lettuces have nice green heads with a pale yellow leaf on the inside. Quite a sharp flavour compared to 'normal ' lettuce, it can taste quite bitter (like chicory or endive). It actually resembles the iceberg lettuce more than common lettuce due to its sturdy leaves. Cos lettuce ‘Little Gem’ is somewhere in between – sturdier than common lettuce with leaves not quite as thick as the iceberg – but tastier! Romaine or Cos lettuce belongs in the family of Lactuca sativa.
