Merlot Lettuce


9 in stock

Categories: , Tag:

This brilliant deep red lettuce makes a bold statement in the garden.

Large wavy leaves have a deep red colour, white veining and a green base. Sweet, crispy and refreshing. Harvest individual leaves, as a “cut and come again” type, or cut heads at the base opening room for a succession crop.

Grow with ‘Flashy Lighting Butter Oak’ for similar leaf structure and colour contrast in your salad. Suitable for spring and fall plantings and cool summers. In the heat of summer, plants will bolt. Consider using shade cloth and staying on top of watering to prevent bolting.

Growing Information:

Lettuce is hardy in cold temperatures, and may be sown directly in your spring garden a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks before the final frost date. Feel free to start seeds indoors at least 6 weeks before the final frost date and transplant to the garden 3 to 4 weeks later.

Space seedlings at least 6-inches apart, in all directions. Sow seeds every 2 to 3 weeks for a continuous crop. Check out my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your area, and to learn the last safe sowing date to achieve a succession crop.

For more information on growing lettuce, please see my post "A Complete Guide to Growing Lettuce".

Shipping Information

Canadian Shipping

Shipping is calculated at the time of order and is based on the number of seed packets per order. All packages are shipped through Canada Post, and pricing for packages containing seeds are the same for addresses across Canada.

Larger items are calculated by weight and destination and will vary by province.

US Shipping

US seed orders are made at the buyer’s own risk, and we cannot guarantee delivery. We will receive and ship orders but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs, which is the reason for this non-guarantee. Unfortunately, I do not offer phytosanitary certificates, so if the seeds are confiscated or destroyed at the border, your order will not be refunded or reissued.

Non-seed orders are calculated by weight and destination and vary by state.

We cannot ship orders outside of North America.
