Red Salad Bowl is sometimes referred to as Oak leaf type. With large heads made up of a mass of serrated  dark red leaves for individual picking. Ideal for "cut and come again" use.

Lettuce is a staple ingredient for most tasty salads. So why not make yours even more exciting by growing your own fresh, crunchy salad leaves.



When to Sow Red Salad Bowl Lettuce Seeds

End of February to July

Where to Sow

Sowings can be made underglass, sow seeds into pots or trays of seed sowing compost at a temperature of 15-20C and lightly cover seeds with sprinkling of vermiculite or compost. Alternatively sow seeds from April thinly along rows 1cm (1/2in) deep and 30cm (12in) apart direct in the vegetable plot.

What to do next

Sowings made underglass can be pricked out into individual pots or module trays and grown on until ready to harden off and plant out into the vegetable plot 30cm (12in) apart between the plants and the rows. Seedlings sown direct outside can be thinned once large enough to handle to 30cm (12in) apart. Thinnings can also be transplanted into other rows, watered in well during hot dry spells.


10-12 weeks from sowing

Handy Tip

If short of space, the attractive red foliage can look just as good planted in a flower border.

Nutritional Values

A good source of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, lutein and vitamin C as well as vitamin K.
