Direct sow lettuce seeds outdoors in spring and summer into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Autumn sowings should be grown under cloches or in a cold greenhouse for overwintering. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 30cm (12") apart in soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 30cm (12") apart and cover with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. Make regular sowings for a constant supply.
Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Dry weather may cause heads of lettuce plants to bolt so watering is particularly critical during the 2 weeks before harvesting. A thick mulch applied around the plants will help to retain moisture in the soil. Harvest lettuce when required by pulling up the entire plant before trimming off the stem with a knife.

  1. Speedy salad

    By Andrew Foster 23-08-2011

    This lettuce is ready to eat within 3 weeks at the height of summer and make for a really interesting, textured salad. If you do it right and sow new seeds every 1 week into containers, you can have lettuce from June-Sept. But don't leave them to grow too much past 4 weeks otherwise the stalks will become too tough.
