Sowing
Direct sow lettuce seeds outdoors from March to July into well prepared, fertile, moist soil in sun or semi shade. Sow seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2”) 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.
More Info

Water lettuce frequently and hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. 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.

Perfect for sandwiches and salads. Ideal for creating a colourful garnish! The dark leaves of lettuce are a good source of betacarotene and vitamin A.
