Originally known as �Sugar Cos�, Little Gem is so widely regarded it is sold by that name in the shops and has become a generic term for this type of small-hearted cos lettuce. Few match the flavour and texture of this much-loved and widely grown original. One of the best lettuces you are likely to grow, it has the Royal Horticultural�s Award of Garden Merit. Lettuces do best of all in fairly light, fertile, well-drained soil, especially when well-rotted organic matter has been added to improve moisture retention. An open, sunny site is best. They will not thrive on poor soils which dry out during summer. A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.

What our customers say
What a fantastic family run business. They have everything you could want in the DIY and home improvement line including knowledgeable advice. I enjoy my trips there, knowing I’ll get what I want accompanied by good value. If all shops were like this the high street would be booming.
This is a little gem - anything that you might need - they will probably have it. Also I found most of the items to be reasonably priced and decent quality.
This place is the original Aladdin's cave - a huge range, everything you ever need for the house and home, with friendly and knowledgeable staff who can't do enough to help. It's a pleasure to shop there, and that comes from someone who really dislikes shopping!
Since 1936 we have carefully hand selected our range to cover all your household needs. Serving generations, we are still fully independent and family owned - meaning you can rely on us to offer great prices and great service.
