Someone on my local Freecycle site gave me some lettuce seedlings a couple of years ago but I'm not sure what type they were.

They were small crisp lettuces but I don't think they were little gems as they were more open than closed.

I would like to grow some myself from seed this year but I am not sure which type of seeds to buy.

Can someone recommend a type of crisp lettuce which can easily be grown in small plastic tiered greenhouses please.

Ta.

    Cos type is the long leaved, narrow & crisp type, sort of cylindrical

    If unsure keep a lookout for mixed salad seeds, that way you get lots of varieties, and normally can "cut & come again" giving a longer cropping period

    I think I have found which one it was, Salad Bowl.
