    Celtuce

    £4.99
    (10 Plants)

    Very unusual plant that can be used in two different ways…

    Celtuce is a stem-lettuce with a Chinese origin. It’s an unusual plant that can be used in 2 ways:

    The leaves can be picked whilst young and used like a cut and come again lettuce. As the stem elongates, the rosette formation changes to a small tuft of leaves on the top.

    Can be grown in: Pots and containers, grow bags, raised beds.
