Lattughino – a very tasty and hardy Italian heritage variety I grow as cut-and-come-again.  Sown in late summer or early autumn I can harvest leaves through until spring.  Around February I thin plants to 30cms apart and allow to heart up.

Maureen – an increasingly popular commercial variety that is now widely available to amateur growers, and much favoured by commercial growers because it is an improved version of the classic baby-cos lettuce Little Gem.  Can be sown in early February in trays and planted up with protection in March for crops in late spring.  Fantastic for successional sowing (a pinch of seed every two or three weeks) through until September with crops into winter.  Transplants easily so a few seed go a long way!  Dare I say it, but this variety is tastier than the classic Little gem.
