(Lactuca sativa) - A veggie garden essential. Lettuce is fast and easy to grow, and one of the most productive crops for small spaces. Most of our lettuce varieties are loose leaf types, ideal for 'cut and come again' style harvests. We have some really good heading varieties too!

Growing: Lettuce loves cool weather and plenty of moisture. Here in Nova Scotia I like to stagger my lettuce plantings throughout the Spring, starting as early as March (indoors) for the earliest harvests, up until hot Summer weather arrives in June. Lettuce tends to bolt in hot weather, but you can extend the season further into the Summer by planting your later sowings in partial shade and giving them plenty of water. Lettuce loves growing in the Fall too! Start sowing fall crops after the summer heat has cooled off a bit, starting around the end of August.

Celtuce - Annapolis Seeds
Celtuce
Price: $2.00

aka; Celery Lettuce. This awesome and unique veggie is common in parts of Asia, but rarely grown in North America. Botanically, it’s a lettuce (Lactuca sativa), and while the leaves are decent what you’re really after is the dense crispy stalk. We picked ours after they began to bolt, but before they fully flowered. The skins are bitter, but peeled they’re juicy and mildly sweet. Amazing raw in salads, or sautéed in stir-fries. Approx. 300 seeds (0.5 g)
