Product Information

If you only grow one lettuce variety, surely this is the one to choose. True to its name, ‘All Year Round’ can be sown at any time of the year for harvesting over a long season.

This heritage variety has been a firm favourite with British vegetable growers since the middle of the 19th century. A classic ‘butterhead’, it produces medium-sized lettuces with loosely formed heads that have soft-textured green outer leaves and compact, crisp, creamy yellow hearts. Succulent and sweet, and a good source of minerals and vitamins A and C, its flavour and goodness easily outclass supermarket-bought lettuce.

Easy to grow, ‘All Year Round’ is a reliable cropper that is slow to bolt, so will crop over a long season. Regular sowings made every 2-3 weeks will ensure a continuous supply. Lettuces are typically ready to pick about 10 weeks after sowing.

Supplied as a packet of 800 (approx.) seeds ready to sow indoors or outdoors in their cropping position.

Care Information

How to grow Lettuce

  • Sow outdoors thinly, March to August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil that has already been watered. Allow 25cm (10in) between rows. Early and late sowings will benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-4 days. Thin out to 20cm (8in) apart, transplant thinning if required. Water well until plants are established. Regular sowings made every 2-3 weeks will ensure a continuous supply. August sowings should be in a greenhouse or under cloches and will be ready the following April to May.
  • Sow indoors into trays or modules for early germination and cropping. When seedlings reach 5cm (2in) in height, harden them off before planting outside into their growing position in shallow drills.
  • Harvest: Pull up the entire plant rather than cutting off at the stem base.

Aftercare

  • Water frequently and keep weed-free.
  • In dry weather, mulch around the plants to retain moisture.
  • Protect from slugs.
