General description


Valdor is a tasty butterhead type lettuce with large, tight hearts. Very resistant to cold, wet conditions and to botrytis and is considered by many to be the world’s best winter lettuce. Suitable for use under glass or for polytunnels, Sow outdoors from August to January at fortnightly intervals to ensure a regular supply. 


Plant requirements

Lettuces mature in around 50 to 60 days when grown at optimum temperatures but the lettuce will slow down in cold weather, a trait which gardeners can use to their advantage. In cold weather a lettuce can stand fresh and ready to be picked for two or more months, it won’t go to seed and if you can protect the crop from very cold or wet weather and if you can get the timing right it will stand in perfect condition right through winter.
