Planting+

Lettuce seeds require no prior treatment. Sow a new row every 3 weeks and you will have a continuous harvest of fresh lettuce.

Care+

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.

Extra+

A wide selection of lettuce varieties is available nowadays. Some are suitable for an early harvest, others for summer cropping and some for in the autumn. There are also varieties that can be grown all year round so always try to choose the right type of lettuce to suit your needs. The varieties are split for spring, summer and autumn according to their propensity to 'bolt'. If for instance you were to sow an early variety in the summer, it would be more than likely to bolt immediately. Not what you want! So choose the correct variety per season! With a cold frame, you can extend your harvesting season by almost 2 months. This lettuce is of the Asteraceae family in the genus Lactuca sativa.
