description for "Lettuce: Lactuca sativa 'Summer Lettuce Bouquet'"

'Summer Lettuce Bouquet,' a custom lettuce seed blend from Renee's Garden, combines new lettuces specially selected for exceptional heat tolerance, striking ornamental beauty and wonderful flavor. Dutch 'Redina' has loose-leaf rosettes with ruffled ruby leaves tapering to speckled green centers. Batavian 'Nevada's broad heads of shiny rich green leaves are known for their sweet taste and juicy texture. Stunning French 'Cardinale' has large vase shaped heads of crispy sweet leaves with gorgeous burgundy edges and green hearts. Plant this summer bouquet to please your eye and palate. Savor early young thinnings in your first spring salads. Then harvest plants either by picking outside leaves after plants are well established or by cutting mature heads when they feel firm and well-filled out. To extend the lettuces season into hotter weather, sow seeds indoors with a strong light source, or outside in containers in light shade. Transplant young seedlings into the garden shading for a few days. Harvest while still young for best flavor. Pull and discard or compost overmature plants if they begin to elongate ("bolt") in hot weather as they are bitter at this stage. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
