Rosalo is an aphid-resistant, baby-leaf type lettuce producing a mass of dark red leaves. These can then be picked individually as required and provides an attractive addition to a veg patch or window box display. It can be sown early in the year and all the way through to late Autumn.
Sow: Indoors from February. Outdoors from March. Plahnt to 6-12mm deep at a temperature no more than 18°C. Seed will germinate in 7 to 14 days. Transplant to growing site when large enough at a distance of 20-30cm. Sow little and often to ensure a continuous supply.
Grow: Sunny or part shade, in fertile soil. Lettuce is about 95% water and will grow rapidly if the growing season is cool and moist. Keep soil moist, dry soil can cause bolting.
Harvest: May to October - pick when big enough for the salad bowl. Harvest all lettuce in early morning for the maximum carotene and best taste - refrigerate immediately.
