GrowingEdit

Main article: Lettuce

SowingEdit

Sow thinly outdoors where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 25cm (10in) between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Regular sowings every two to three weeks will ensure a continuous supply.[2]

ThinningEdit

Thin out to 15cm (6in) apart.

AftercareEdit

Water well until plants are established.
