Grand Rapids Lettuce. Heirloom vegetable. The ruling Monarch of the leaf lettuce family since its introduction in the late 1800’s! Crispy, succulent, light green leaves are lightly crinkled and possess a fine delicate taste. This is an excellent variety for cut and grow again multiple harvests. You can also successfully grow a continuous supply of Grand Rapids outside of the normal growing season by using a cold-frame, light garden or even sunny window! Soil-less (peat moss based) potting soils work best for indoor growing. Use water soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer every two weeks to promote strong growth.

These seeds are carefully spaced in biodegradable paper to allow even spacing and virtually eliminate the need for thinning. 

5m of seed tape

How To Grow Sow seed tape sections at two weekly intervals for a continuous supply. Your first harvest will be ready around 12 weeks from sowing. Separate the strips and roll out onto prepared rows which are 5mm deep and 30cm apart. Cover with soil and keep moist.
Ensure lettuce leaves are dry before making salad so dressing will stick!
