This new great tasting Romaine will be a perfect addition to your veggie garden! Fast maturing, uniform variety that is well-suited to use in a chopped salad or for lettuce cups. The medium green romaine color combined with large, slightly savoyed leaves just add to the overall appeal of this variety. Valley Heart also has good bolting tolerance, which makes it widely adaptable to multiple growing locations.
Seed outdoors as soon as weather and soil conditions permit. Cover seed lightly with soil, 6 to 7 seeds per 30 cm (1 ft) of row. Average garden soil and a sunny location will produce loads of lettuce. Thin to 20 cm (8 in) apart when 5 cm (2 in) high. Successive seeding every 10 to 14 days will provide fresh lettuce all summer long. Lettuce may also be planted in the flower garden as a contrast plant.
