Baby lettuce plant (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cosset

Here is my best explanation:

'baby' is the definition.

('cosset' can be a synonym of 'baby')

'lettuce plant' is the subsidiary indication.

'lettuce' becomes 'cos' (cos is a kind of lettuce).

'plant' becomes 'set'.

'cos'+'set'='cosset'

(Other definitions for cosset that I've seen before include "Protect overindulgently", "Pamper and spoil", "Spoil, pamper", "Pamper, indulge", "Treat overindulgently", "Overindulge", "Fondle", "Pamper, coddle (6)", "Overindulgently care for" and "Care for and protect".)
