Sowing Months Harvest Months
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.
Direct sow little gem seeds outdoors March to August into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. September to January sowings of Vailan should be sown thinly in seed trays of good wquality compost 6mm (1/4in) deep at 15C(66F) until germination, which takes 7 - 10 days. Transplant seedlings about 5 weeks from sowing to a growbag or a frost free coldframe 20cm (8in) apart for overwintering .
