What’s so special about our Bibb Lettuce

Most head lettuce varieties get pretty big: only one would fit in your 30x30 cm plot. Our mini Bibb Lettuce produces dense little heads, so you can let them grow and grow. Four can fit in your square patch. 
 
The lettuce has a light yellow-green color and a mild, juicy taste. 

Sowing and growing


Growing this lettuce is simple: put a few seeds in a hole and keep the soil mix moist. After they come up, thin out the seedlings and leave just 1 plant per hole. Four plants fit in one square patch. 
 
If you’re having a cold spring, you can cover the plants at night with some fleece or the MM-Muts cover to help them grow faster. 
 
And watch out for snails: they love young lettuce. 
 
Step-by-step sowing and growing instructions are in the Planty Garden app. 

How do you use it?

Lettuce leaves are great for salads. Or, they’re also tasty in green smoothies. 
 
Once the plants start to bolt (flower), the leaves get tougher and a bit bitter. Use these older leaves in a stew, soup, stir-fry or with mashed potatoes: yum!
