This collection contains:

Type Hardy Annual
Common Name Lettuce
Soil Type Neutral

Spacing 20-25cm (8-10in)
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Direct sow in small batches every 4-6 weeks from February-early September. Water the drill before sowing to decrease temperatures and sow in the evening. Can also sow in modules under cover from February-March and/or September-October. You can speed the germination process up by sowing into a length of guttering under cover and transplanting outside.
Care Tips The plants will be happiest in a cool, northern bed. Hot weather inhibits germination & increases the likelihood of bolting.
Storing Pick just before serving.
Harvesting 6-8 weeks from sowing, giving leaves for about 3 months. Harvest just outer leaves so plant can continue to grow. Successional sowing should provide leaves nearly all year. Keep picking regularly to prevent flowers running to seed.
Cooking Notes Wash well.

Extremely happy with the results. The lettuces sown in September. Lived through winter even though we are in Lancs and 170 m up a fell. Very vigorous and healthy plants. Couldn't eat them all though had a damn good try.
