Plant details

There is a bewildering diversity of lettuce types, with more appearing all the time. Butterheads are soft loose-hearted varieties, crispheads or icebergs are large dense and crunchy, cos types have upright crisp leaves, and loose-leaf do not make hearts but are gathered as dense leafy heads or individual leaves are picked over a long period. 'All the Year Round' is a butterhead variety with medium heads and solid, crips hearts. It is a hardy, reliable variety ideal for successional sowings from spring to autumn.
