Lettuce seeds require no prior treatment. Sow a new row every 3 weeks and you will have a continuous harvest of fresh lettuce.
Water more frequently in dry spells. Keeping the plot weed free will help the lettuce grow better.Try to prevent lettuce from bolting - the lettuce produces a stalk which eventually forms flowers which then turn to seed. This happens more often in the summer and may vary per lettuce variety. Bolted lettuce is still edible but tastes bitter. Try to harvest before this happens.
